Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you know your spine and what it requires? Does your physician? Does your insurance provider (ie, Medicare)? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our Auburn chiropractic patients. Your Auburn chiropractor examines your low back when there is low back pain, your neck when there is neck pain, your neck when there is arm pain, your low back when there’s leg pain, your thoracic spine when there’s thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor ”gets” your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer does not. The chiropractic profession strives to provide the research to the insurers to pay for essential treatment for your spine while your Auburn chiropractor endeavors to communicate clearly with your insurer for your optimal care and with you for your optimal clinical outcome: back pain relief, neck pain relief, arm pain relief, leg pain relief, etc.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data does not tell the whole story about back pain. In a study that compared self-reported low back pain to data gathered by health administrations that track low back pain via billing codes and such found that these two sources do not agree. Self-reported data regarding low back pain (21.2%) was higher than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients based on data differed in a few areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an underestimated prevalence of low back pain. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that expressly examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient point of view and the objective testing angle found that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, real input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors who filled out objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to notice that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is important in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your Auburn chiropractor factors in this evidence to take care of your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your Auburn chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence leads the spine relief treatment plan at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.. A fascinating study of chiropractic students found that as each year of school passed the students became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is prepared to take care of Auburn back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of useful chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers write today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may inhibit unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one type of non-drug pain management offering. In an analysis of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients got an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who use chiropractic are found to have higher clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries a year later, less opioid-linked disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less cost (fewer medical doctors visits for low back pain, less opioid expense, less back-surgery cost) with higher levels of satisfaction. (5) These aren’t bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
