Coordinated Colorado Springs Chiropractic and GP Care of Back Pain

So, you want back pain relief to get back to enjoying life like “normal”? Back pain sufferers can relate to that! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is well aware of this, too, and works closely with our Colorado Springs back pain patients and their other healthcare professionals to get them back to “normal,” enjoying life again.

REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN

A new study described the referral practices of general practitioners to Danish chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics with more than one chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound got more referrals. 31% of the new patients - 2.5 referrals per week - in chiropractic practices came via general practitioner referral. Chiropractors who sent more patients to general practitioners also received more referrals. Those who reported expertise in geriatric care and had more new patients per week got more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate the importance of interprofessional communication which your Colorado Springs chiropractor embraces! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR works with local Colorado Springs healthcare colleagues in all ways to benefit our mutual back and neck pain patients in getting relief and regaining their quality of life.

QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION

Quality of life is often a reflection of how well we feel, especially as we get older. A study of Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was quite enlightening. Those who got spinal manipulation were more likely to be very satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT versus 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 stated a lower degree of concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) The goal of care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is to decrease our Colorado Springs back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining clearly what the condition is and its expected care outcomes, and performing gentle, relieving care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
