Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain sufferer a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your Groton chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It is a partnership among the Groton back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office enjoy their profession most because they are able to reduce pain and build strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients through an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the foundation for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Groton chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is the best part of daily practice.


Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician decreased 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults. The researchers admit certain limitations in their study as they extracted a specific set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability influences how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly associated with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Groton, back pain sufferers get a partner at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office who can help them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.


Medicine is realizing that the one who is truly at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain patient self-manages most of the time anyway and desires suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to contain and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take guidance from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Groton back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office must communicate how each sees back pain management to most advantageously help the patient!
