Wilson Family Chiropractic Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you understand your spine and what it requires? Does your doctor? Does your insurer (ie, Medicare)? Wilson Family Chiropractic prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our Millville chiropractic patients. Your Millville chiropractor examines your low back when there’s low back pain, your neck when there’s neck pain, your neck when you have arm pain, your low back when you have leg pain, your thoracic spine when there is thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor knows your spine. Unfortunately, sometimes your insurer does not. The chiropractic profession endeavors to provide the research to the insurers to pay for essential treatment for your spine while your Millville chiropractor endeavors to communicate openly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your optimal clinical outcome: back pain relief, neck pain relief, arm pain relief, leg pain relief, etc.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data doesn’t tell the entire story about back pain. In one study comparing self-reported low back pain to data assembled by health administrations that track low back pain via billing codes and the like found that these two sources don’t agree. Self-reported data about low back pain (21.2%) was higher than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients founded on data varied in several areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an undervalued prevalence of low back pain. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that expressly looked at one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient angle and the objective testing angle revealed that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, authentic input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors who filled out objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to observe that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is valuable in the overall picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your Millville chiropractor factors in this evidence to care for your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your Millville chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at Wilson Family Chiropractic. A fascinating study of chiropractic students revealed how as each year of school passed the students became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is ready to take care of Millville back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of beneficial chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers report today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may inhibit unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one type of non-drug pain management offering. In a study of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients got an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who utilize chiropractic are found to have better clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries a year later, less opioid-associated disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less cost (fewer medical doctors visits for low back pain, less opioid expense, less back-surgery cost) with higher levels of satisfaction. (5) These are not bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
