YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Reduce Pain, Reduce Opioid Prescription Fills, Enhance Quality of Life

Chiropractic care is hands-on treatment valued by many for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is structured for the inclusion 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 better 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 novel role to manage spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was proposed, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Incorporating such care into the healthcare system is aimed to improve effectiveness and value of care because high costs and poor outcomes are familiar in spine care. (3) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands the spine, the conservative care of its pain, and the value of working with other healthcare practitioners to deliver the pain relief we all want for you! Your Colorado Springs chiropractor is your hands-on spine pain practitioner!

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

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

Combining efforts, be it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is beneficial. In dealing with back pain or neck pain, combining treatment at the office with exercise at home is beneficial. The latest report of such a combination stated 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. Their range of motion got better as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain patients report further benefit when they are active in their care.
