Millville Back Pain Option: Control It

Control not cure. That is a difficult concept to bear when you are in pain. On the other hand, for many back pain and neck pain patients, any relief is acceptable. Wilson Family Chiropractic treats many Millville back pain and Millville neck pain patients who deal with chronic pain. Fortunately, spine pain patients who decide on chiropractic care with realistic goals often find relief.

CURE vs MANAGEMENT

When patients go to doctors, they usually seek a “fix”. They want to be “cured” from their ailment be it a cold or a headache or an infection even their back pain or neck pain. Researchers wrote that medicine and healthcare mostly follow the “curative” model of care. For some conditions, management or control of the condition develops into the goal of care. Back and neck pain patients who come to the realization that their condition is theirs for life and that there is a way to control that pain by on-going chiropractic care turn into grateful patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic sees them all the time. The healthcare “curative” model may not change any time soon, but the patients’ healthcare options do. Recently, researchers studied back pain patients seeking care from chiropractors. Of 1614 chronic back and neck pain patients, less than 1/3rd of them had a goal of a permanent resolution to their pain. These patients experienced pain for a shorter time and sought a medical cure. The rest of the patients sought on-going care to avert the pain from coming back, prevent it from getting worse, and experience temporary relief of their pain. These patients had less pain intensity for a longer time. (1) Patients’ hopes affect their pain relief.

HOPES OF BACK PAIN PATIENTS

It is no secret that low back pain is a costly healthcare challenge considering finances and quality of life. Back pain sufferers who hold a high expectation of improvement enjoy a 58% greater chance of reporting improvement at the fourth chiropractic appointment. Your Millville chiropractor knows the significance of our back pain patients’ hopes and expectations. These hopes foretell short-term outcomes better than pain intensity, self-rated health status or psychological status.

50% RELIEF

50% relief is a quality of life improvement! The 50% Rule with The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management relays realistic expectations to spine pain sufferers at the start of care. Many Millville back pain patients who come to Wilson Family Chiropractic and have struggled with their pain for a while are delighted at the prospect of 10% or 20% or 50% or more. They just desire some semblance of their pre-pain life back even if it is walking around the block or going to the grocery store. Cox® Technic seeks 50% relief of pain within a month of care with patient cooperation on appointments and at-home recommendations of exercise and/or nutrition. The 50% Rule also assures both the back pain sufferer and the physician that the “next thing” to do if relief is not attained will be managed. Our patients can rely on Wilson Family Chiropractic to take care of them.
