How many doctors
have you visited for your present pain condition whether
it is back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Many Richmond chiropractic
patients coming to Johnson Chiropractic initially will report that they have consulted with
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or hardly any
relief. Johnson Chiropractic sees 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 pros shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods integrated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients had less pain and better rates
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes make such integration of care
options in Richmond healthcare quite enticing!
Johnson Chiropractic is ready!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now encourage pain patients to use complementary and integrative health
methods – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. More
than a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common type
of care. (3) Johnson Chiropractic welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Johnson Chiropractic knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily routines of Richmond 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 effectively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in embracing 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 causes of disability around the world.
Chiropractors are trained and deliver non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers say
that improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will enhance
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care utilizes the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That is what Johnson Chiropractic and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
