So, you want relief for your
back pain to get back to enjoying life like “normal”? Back
pain sufferers get that! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows
this, too, and works closely with our Auburn back
pain patients and their other healthcare professionals to return to “normal,” enjoying life again.
REFERRALS TO CHIROPRACTORS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN
A new study noted how general practitioners refer to Danish
chiropractors. Chiropractic clinics that have more than one
chiropractor and with diagnostic ultrasound got
more referrals. 31% of all new patients - 2.5 referrals per
week - in chiropractic offices came via general practitioner referral. Chiropractors who referred
more patients to general practitioners also were referred more patients. Those who shared that they had expertise in
geriatric care and had a higher number of new patients a
week received more referrals, too. (1) These findings accentuate
the significance of interprofessional interaction
which your Auburn chiropractor supports! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
works with local Auburn healthcare colleagues whenever
possible to benefit our shared back and
neck pain patients in getting relief and regaining
their quality of life.
QUALITY OF LIFE WITH CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION
Quality of life is often a reflection of
how well we feel, especially as we age. A report of
Medicare recipients who received spinal manipulation (SMT) and/or were prescribed drug therapy (PDT) for their chronic low back pain was very revealing.
Those who received spinal manipulation were more likely to be very
satisfied with their care: 84% for SMT versus 50% for PDT. Those who received
spinal manipulation documented their health-related quality of
life scores significantly higher than those with prescription drug therapy: 12.85
for SMT vs 9.92 for PDT. As for the concern they felt receiving each type of therapy, SMT
patients receiving chiropractic care stated a lower degree of
concern than the PDT patient receiving prescription therapy. (2) The
goal of care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is to decrease our
Auburn back pain patients’ concern over their pain condition and
its care by doing a thorough examination, explaining
clearly what the condition is along with its expected care outcomes, and delivering gentle, relieving
care for back pain, neck pain, and other spine-related pain relief.
