Coordinated West Palm Beach Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

So, you want back pain relief to return and enjoy life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers get that! Moses Chiropractic is well aware of this, too, and works closely with our West Palm Beach back pain patients and their other healthcare professionals to return to “normal,” delighting in life again.

REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN

A new study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound received more referrals. 31% of the new patients - 2.5 referrals a week - in chiropractic offices came via general practitioner referral. Chiropractors who sent more patients to general practitioners also received more referrals. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients a week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings emphasize the importance of interprofessional interaction which your West Palm Beach chiropractor supports! Moses Chiropractic collaborates with local West Palm Beach healthcare colleagues whenever possible to help our shared back and neck pain patients in getting relief and reclaiming their quality of life.

QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION

Quality of life is often a reflection of how well we feel, especially as we get older. A report of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was quite revealing. Those who got spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT vs 50% for PDT. Those who got spinal manipulation documented their health-related quality of life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85 for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. As for the concern they felt receiving each type of therapy, SMT patients receiving chiropractic care stated a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) The goal of care at Moses Chiropractic is to lower our West Palm Beach back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining well what the condition is as well as the expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
