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 common education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain influences lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods included 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 Sitka healthcare quite enticing!
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is ready!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now encourage pain patients to use complementary and integrative health
approaches – self-care - for pain management as well as their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, 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 reported
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Sitka 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 effectively help patients wanting
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in adopting 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 enhancing collaboration between chiropractic and
medical 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 puts to use the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
