Healthy News - December 2019

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. [shares how medical physicians are referring to complementary health approaches more, particularly for chiropractic manipulation and massage. 

PHYSICIAN REFERRALS AND BENEFITS

Physician referrals to complementary health approaches (CHAs) is interesting. An inquiry revealed that 53.1% of all US physicians recommended at least one CHA to patients in the past 12 months. The most common approaches suggested were massage therapy (30.4%), chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation (27.1%), herbs/nonvitamin supplements (26.5%), yoga (25.6%) and acupuncture (22.4%). Female physicians were more inclined than their male counterparts to suggest for massage, supplements, acupuncture and mind-body therapies. Psychiatrists, OB/GYNs, and pediatricians were less inclined to recommend chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation than general and family practitioners who most often suggested manipulation (54%) and massage (52.6%). (1) And it’s been documented that first contact care by a chiropractor for issues like back pain, shoulder and hip pain results in lower cost of care as well as clinically comparable pain relief and greater satisfaction levels. (2) We enjoy seeing this referral among healthcare providers and physicians of all sorts! Auburn chiropractic patients may well benefit from such cooperation in costs savings, pain relief, and assurance in the care they receive.

Listen to the PODCAST with Dr. Kim Lombardy on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson who interacts with physicians of all professions to benefit patients and especially his patient with hip pain and a slipped disc that bothered her after her hip surgery. His use of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management sets him apart.

Auburn holiday joy and even fun with Santa are analyzed as to their potential for preventing divorce and increasing happiness.  

TIP OF THE MONTH: Embrace the Holiday Season!

Just for fun, check out these Danish reports about the benefits of holiday joy and Santa fun! One study of medical doctors whose November conferences (with coffee) were contrasted to December conferences (without coffee but with Santa). The Santa visits enhanced the joy to the level of meetings with coffee. (The authors point out that the research study was “kept secret for the participant in accordance with the tradition of Santa’s elves.”) (3) Another Danish study considered issues like belief in Santa and relationship length that may impact divorce rates of doctors just after the holidays. Divorce rates rose least for general practitioners whose relationships were also found to be longer that other medical subspecialties. Believing in Santa was helpful only for psychiatrists! These authors’ final recommendation was to join in the Christmas fun but don’t rely on Santa for the gift shopping. Everyone must do that for himself/herself! (4) If you see Santa in your Auburn chiropractor’s office, it’s a good thing for all!
