How many health professionals
have you visited for your current pain condition [[whether
be it back, neck, leg or arm pain? Quite a few McHenry chiropractic
patients who come to OrthoIllinois Chiropractic for the first
time will tell us that they have visited
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical consultations focused on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical pros shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the causes of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods incorporated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without more use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of services in McHenry healthcare quite attractive!
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
options – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Particularly, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The number one condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common type
of care. (3) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of McHenry back pain patients
that will assist them in controlling the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most positively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems continue to bring in 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 top the
list of causes of disability globally.
Chiropractors are experienced and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers note
that improving collaboration between chiropractic and
medical physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care uses the best evidence
from research to make clinical treatment decisions that end
in patient satisfaction. That’s what OrthoIllinois Chiropractic and its use
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
