West Palm Beach Back Pain Patients Expect Results from Chiropractic Care

“I don’t want this pain to get any worse.”

“I want some pain relief.”

“I want pain relief.”

“I want this back pain to go away and never return.”

Back pain and neck pain patients have a tendency to have assorted goals for their pain. Healthcare policy often relates to cure. Many chronic pain patients know otherwise. Moses Chiropractic knows otherwise. We all want relief and some trace of control over how and when back pain and neck pain arise and go away. Chiropractic care is for these patients. Moses Chiropractic’s chiropractic care examines a problem like back and neck pain and recognizes that often there is no “cure,” but there is “control.” Back pain and neck pain patients who have gone through a few bouts with either condition realize this, too. They align their healthcare goals with their experience: there is not always a cure, but there is often control to prevent pain episodes and relieving care to get through the pain episodes as quickly as possible. Moses Chiropractic is the West Palm Beach chiropractic place for back and neck pain patients. Moses Chiropractic is home of the West Palm Beach back pain specialist.

PATIENT EXPECTATIONS: HOW THEY INFLUENCE AND HOW THEY’RE MET

Chiropractic back pain specialists know their back pain and neck pain patients well. A newly released study of 1614 patients experiencing chronic low back pain (885) and chronic neck pain (729) revealed their goals for chiropractic care of their issues. About a third of them wanted the pain to cease permanently and tended to have had pain for a shorter time and hold a deeper belief in medical cure; they sought a cure. 22% of low back pain and 16% of neck pain patients wished to stop their pain from coming back and were more likely to have lower pain levels. 14% of low back and 12% of neck pain patients sought to prevent their pain from getting worse. 31% of back pain and 41% of neck pain patients wished temporary relief of their pain. These last two groups of patients were more likely to have had pain for a longer period of time. Which group do you fall into? Like most humans, there is a discrepancy from person to person depending on their experience that chiropractors and other healthcare providers really should recognize. (1) Such patient expectations are written to predict short-term outcomes of chiropractic care for low back pain. Another study detailed that patients with a high expectation of improvement were 58% more likely to report an improvement at the fourth visit. (2) Certainly, having healthcare providers of various professions working as a team can raise low back pain patients’ likelihoods of relief. (3) Today, the patient is the focus for healthcare providers. Patient-centered care depends on patient-reported outcomes to tell the story. The patient’s perspective needs to always be considered. And as for non-pharmacological treatment of low back pain, active patient involvement is essential. (4) At Moses Chiropractic the West Palm Beach back pain patient is at the center of all we do.
