Coordinated Sandy Springs Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

So, you desire relief for your back pain to return and enjoy life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers can relate to that! Cross Chiropractic Center knows this, too, and works closely with our Sandy Springs back pain patients and their other healthcare professionals to return to “normal,” enjoying life again.

REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN

A recent study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound obtained more referrals. 31% of all new patients - 2.5 referrals a week - in chiropractic practices came via a referral from a general practitioner. Chiropractors who referred more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients per week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the importance of interprofessional communication which your Sandy Springs chiropractor supports! Cross Chiropractic Center works with local Sandy Springs healthcare colleagues in all ways to help our mutual back and neck pain patients in finding relief and regaining their quality of life.

QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION

Quality of life is often an indication of how well we feel, especially as we age. A study of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was very enlightening. Those who received spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT vs 50% for PDT. Those who got spinal manipulation reported 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 reported a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) Our goal at Cross Chiropractic Center is to decrease our Sandy Springs back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by performing a thorough examination, describing clearly what the condition is and its expected care outcomes, and delivering gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
