Moses Chiropractic Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you know your spine and what it needs? Does your doctor? Does your insurer (ie, Medicare)? Moses Chiropractic prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor examines your low back when there is low back pain, your neck when there is neck pain, your neck when there is arm pain, your low back when there’s leg pain, your thoracic spine when there’s thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor knows your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer doesn’t. The chiropractic profession strives to provide the research to the insurers to cover essential treatment for your spine while your West Palm Beach chiropractor strives to communicate openly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your optimal clinical outcome: back pain relief, neck pain relief, arm pain relief, leg pain relief, etc.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data does not tell the entire story about back pain. In one study that compared self-reported low back pain to data collected by health groups that track low back pain via billing codes and such discovered that these two groups do not agree. Self-reported data about low back pain (21.2%) was higher than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients founded on data varied in a few areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an underestimated prevalence of low back pain. (1) Moses Chiropractic knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that specifically examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient angle and the objective testing angle revealed that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, authentic input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors who filled out objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to note that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is important in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor uses this evidence to care for your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at Moses Chiropractic. A fascinating study of chiropractic students revealed how with each year of education they became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is prepared to take care of West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of beneficial chiropractic spine care keeps expanding! Researchers report today of how the use of non-pharmacological pain management may prevent unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one such non-drug pain management offering. In an analysis of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients filled an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who use chiropractic are found to have better clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries 12 months later, less opioid-linked disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less cost (fewer medical doctors visits for low back pain, less opioid expense, less back-surgery cost) with more satisfaction. (5) These are not bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
