Chiropractic services are accepted as effective for back and neck pain relief. A new study describes the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the suggested treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients described as “concordant” (5 or more visits during any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits during the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) who were also further defined by other demographics were followed. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were considered “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare bills for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Don’t allow physical function make you discordant or hold you back from coming to your visits! Don’t skip your appointments.
