Healthy News - December 2019

Wilson Family Chiropractic [presents how medical physicians are referring to complementary health approaches more, particularly for chiropractic manipulation and massage. 

PHYSICIAN REFERRALS AND BENEFITS

Physician referrals to complementary health approaches (CHAs) is noteworthy. A survey found that 53.1% of all US physicians referred patients to at least one CHA in the past 12 months. The most common approaches suggested were acupuncture, yoga, herbs/nonvitamin supplements, osteopathic/chiropractic manipulation, and massage. Female physicians were more likely than their male counterparts to refer for massage, supplements, acupuncture and mind-body therapies. Psychiatrists, OB/GYNs, and pediatricians were less inclined to recommend chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation than general and family practitioners who most often recommended manipulation (54%) and massage (52.6%). (1) And it’s been recorded that first contact care by a chiropractor for issues like back pain, shoulder and hip pain results in lower cost of care as well as clinically similar pain relief and greater satisfaction levels. (2) We enjoy seeing this referral among healthcare providers and physicians of all types! Millville chiropractic patients may well benefit from such cooperation in costs savings, pain relief, and confidence in the care they receive.

Listen to the PODCAST with Dr. Kim Lombardy on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson who works with physicians of all professions to help patients and especially this patient with hip pain and a slipped disc that bothered her after her hip surgery. His use of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management makes his care special.

Millville holiday joy and even fun with Santa are analyzed as to their potential for preventing divorce and increasing happiness.  

TIP OF THE MONTH: Embrace the Holiday Season!

Just for fun, take a look at these Danish reports about the advantages of holiday joy and Santa fun! One analysis of medical doctors whose November conferences (with coffee) were compared to December conferences (without coffee but with Santa). The Santa visits boosted the happiness to the level of meetings with coffee. (The authors highlight that the trial was “kept secret for the participant in accordance with the tradition of Santa’s elves.”) (3) Another Danish study analyzed issues like belief in Santa and relationship length that may influence divorce rates of doctors just after the holidays. Divorce rates rose least for general practitioners whose relationships were also reported to be longer that other medical subspecialties. Belief in Santa was advantageous only for psychiatrists! These authors’ final recommendation was to join in the Christmas fun but do not rely on Santa for the gift shopping. Everyone must do that for himself/herself! (4) Bring Santa with you to your next Millville chiropractic visit! He will do us all some good!
