How many healthcare practitioners
have you visited for your present pain condition it’s back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Many Sandy Springs chiropractic
patients who visit Cross Chiropractic Center for the first
time will report that they have seen
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Cross Chiropractic Center talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain get help from
shared medical appointments centered on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods integrated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes make such integration of services in Sandy Springs healthcare quite attractive!
Cross Chiropractic Center is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
methods – self-care - for pain management as well as their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The number one condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Cross Chiropractic Center knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily routines of Sandy Springs back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most positively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in adopting chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the call for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain continue to lead the
list of reasons for disability globally.
Chiropractors are trained and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers note
that improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care puts to use the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Cross Chiropractic Center and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
