Sandy Springs Chiropractic Care Works for Those Who Have Access and Use It

Access and concordance. Agreement with the plan and access to the plan. These are the ingredients to favorable outcomes with chiropractic care. In Sandy Springs, access to chiropractic is straightforward. Cross Chiropractic Center invites back pain and neck pain patients to share their pain symptoms openly to foster a pain relieving treatment plan which they will follow.

CONCORDANCE IS A BIG KEY TO BEST CLINICAL OUTCOMES

Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been proven efficacious as many randomized clinical trials have been completed. Chiropractic services are acknowledged to be as effective for back and neck pain relief. A new study describes the satisfaction of patients who either follow the proposed treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits throughout the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare costs for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues played a role among other items for these patients. (1) Don’t allow physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your appointments! Don’t skip your appointments. Cross Chiropractic Center knows the treatment plan with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that is most effective for your condition.

ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES

Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are seen to more frequently use some medical services for spine conditions. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care users who moved geographically from an area which had more access to chiropractic care to an area with less access to found that these patients wound up experiencing more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (an increase of 32.3 visits more annually) and were more likely to get spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per year). Financially, this reduced access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in higher expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (equaling $391 million nationally).
