McHenry Chiropractic Care Works for Those Who Have Access and Use It

Access and concordance. Agreement with the plan and access to the plan. These are the ingredients to favorable outcomes with chiropractic care. In McHenry, access to chiropractic is straightforward. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic invites back pain and neck pain sufferers to describe their pain symptoms honestly to develop a pain relieving treatment plan to which they can they can agree.


Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been shown efficacious as many randomized clinical trials have been completed. Chiropractic services are established as effective for neck pain and back pain relief. A recent study describes the satisfaction of patients who either follow the proposed treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits throughout the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time period or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were considered “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare costs for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Don’t allow physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your appointments! Don’t skip your appointments. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows the treatment plan with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that is most effective for your spine pain issue.

Older adults who do not have such access to chiropractic care are seen to more frequently use some medical services for spine issues. Medicare data of 39,278 chiropractic care recipients who moved geographically from an area with more access to chiropractic care to an area which had less access to found that these patients wound up experiencing more visits to primary care physicians for spine issues (an increase of 32.3 visits more a year) and were more likely to get spinal surgery (5.5 more surgeries per annum). Financially, this decreased access to chiropractic care for spine issues resulted in more expense to Medicare: an extra $114,967 per 1,000 beneficiaries on medical services (amounting to $391 million nationally). (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is open here in McHenry to relieve pain and save money on spine pain relief services.


Sharing everything about your back pain experience with your McHenry chiropractor is important to your pain-relieving treatment plan.
