How many healthcare practitioners
have you sought for your current pain condition whether
it is back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Quite a few Vancouver chiropractic
patients who visit Vancouver Disc Centers initially will tell us that they have consulted with
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Vancouver Disc Centers talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain get help from
shared medical appointments centered on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical pros shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain impacts lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods included chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without more use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of services in Vancouver healthcare quite enticing!
Vancouver Disc Centers 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) Particularly, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. More
than a third of patients referred themselves for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients described
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Vancouver Disc Centers knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily routines of Vancouver back pain patients
that will assist them in controlling 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 continue to bring in 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 globally.
Chiropractors are experienced and deliver 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 utilizes the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Vancouver Disc Centers and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
