Beneficial McHenry Chiropractic Care for Relief of Pain

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.


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!


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.


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.
