Millville Back Pain Patients Expect Results from Chiropractic Care

“I do not want this pain to worsen.”

“I want some pain relief.”

“I want pain relief.”

“I want this back pain to go away and never return.”

Back pain and neck pain patients have a tendency to have different goals for their pain. Healthcare policy often relates to cure. Many chronic pain patients know otherwise. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows otherwise. We all want relief and some hint of control over how and when back pain and neck pain appear and disappear. Chiropractic care is for these patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic’s chiropractic care examines a problem like back and neck pain and acknowledges that often there is no “cure,” but there is “control.” Back pain and neck pain patients who have experienced a few episodes with either condition acknowledge this, too. They associate their healthcare goals with their experience: there is not always a cure, but there is often control to prevent pain episodes and relieving care to get through the pain episodes as fast as possible. Wilson Family Chiropractic is the Millville chiropractic home for back and neck pain patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic is home of the Millville back pain specialist.

PATIENT EXPECTATIONS: HOW THEY INFLUENCE AND HOW THEY’RE MET

Chiropractic back pain specialists know their back pain and neck pain patients well. A recent study of 1614 patients experiencing chronic low back pain (885) and chronic neck pain (729) reported their goals for chiropractic care of their issues. About a third of them wished for the pain to cease forever and were more likely to have had pain for a shorter time and have a stronger belief in medical cure; they sought a cure. 22% of low back pain and 16% of neck pain patients sought to prevent their pain from coming back and tended to have lower pain levels. 14% of low back and 12% of neck pain patients sought to stop their pain from getting worse. 31% of back pain and 41% of neck pain patients sought temporary relief of their pain. These last two groups of patients were more likely to have had pain for a longer period of time. Which group do you fall into? Like most humans, there is a difference from person to person depending on their experience that chiropractors and other healthcare providers really should recognize. (1) Such patient expectations are documented to predict short-term outcomes of chiropractic care for low back pain. Another study detailed that patients with a high expectation of improvement were 58% more apt to report an improvement at the 4th appointment. (2) Surely, having an interdisciplinary team of healthcare providers working as a team can raise low back pain patients’ chances of relief. (3) Today, the patient is the focus for healthcare providers. Patient-centered care depends on patient-reported outcomes to tell the story. The patient’s perspective needs to always be considered. And when it comes to non-pharmacological treatment of low back pain, active patient involvement is essential. (4) At Wilson Family Chiropractic the Millville back pain patient is at the center of everything we do.
