INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain get help from
shared medical appointments focused on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The contributing integrative
and lifestyle medical pros shared 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 services in Groton healthcare quite attractive!
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is prepared to participate!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now support patients’
wanting to use complementary and integrative health
approaches – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. More
than a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The number one condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common type
of care. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Groton back pain patients
that will help them control the pain instead of
letting the pain control them and their lives.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO THE OVERALL TREATMENT PLAN
To most effectively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in embracing chiropractic care
for the benefit of and to meet the demand for such care by their back
and neck pain patients. Why? Back and neck pain top the
list of reasons for disability around the world.
Chiropractors are trained and provide non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers note
that enhancing collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
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 end
in patient satisfaction. That is what Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, delivers: evidence-based care.
