YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Lessen Pain, Decrease Opioid Prescription Fills, Improve Quality of Life

Chiropractic care is hands-on care valued by many for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is structured for the integration of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities incorporating chiropractic – the Veteran’s Healthcare Administrationusual medical care plus chiropractic care for patients with low back pain was documented as being beneficial. There was a significant difference in the results of usual medical care versus usual medical care plus chiropractic care in higher quality of life scoring as well as pain-related disability with chiropractic care. (1) In the Medicare system, older beneficiaries with spinal pain who used chiropractic care were at significantly lower risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a new role to deal with spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was proposed, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Incorporating such care into the healthcare system is meant to improve effectiveness and value of care as high costs and poor outcomes are common in spine care. (3) Your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center understands the spine, the conservative care of its pain, and the value of working with other healthcare practitioners to get you the pain relief we all want for you! Your Sandy Springs chiropractor is your hands-on spine pain practitioner!

Cross Chiropractic Center presents a new study highlighting the benefit of adding at-home exercise to in-office treatment for neck pain relief.

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:  ADD AT-HOME EXERCISE

Blending efforts, whether it is it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is beneficial. In looking for relief of back pain or neck pain, mixing treatment at the office with exercise at home is beneficial. The latest report of such a combination found that four 20-minute sessions of manual therapy and exercise plus an at-home exercise program was more effective than without manual therapy for neck pain sufferers. The patients’ range of motion improved as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Sandy Springs back pain and neck pain patients find further benefit when they are active in their care.
