How many doctors
have you visited for your current pain condition [[whether
be it back pain or neck pain
or leg pain or arm pain? Many Vancouver chiropractic
patients who come to Vancouver Spine Care Centre for the first
time will tell us that they have consulted with
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or no
relief. Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 common education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the origins of pain, and how
pain impacts lifestyle choices. Recommended
care methods integrated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients experienced less pain and better rates
of physical, mental, and social health without more use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes make such integration of care
options in Vancouver healthcare quite inviting!
Vancouver Spine Care Centre is ready!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now encourage pain patients to use complementary and integrative health
approaches – self-care - for pain management in
addition to their recommendations – practitioner-delivered care. (2) Specifically, Centers
for Complementary Medicine (CCM) are integrated healthcare delivery systems. Over a third of patients are self-referred for care
at CCMs. The top condition that CCM patients listed
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common type
of care. (3) Vancouver Spine Care Centre welcomes patients who want care they know
will help. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules 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 positively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in embracing 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 continue to lead 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 improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will enhance
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care puts to use the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Vancouver Spine Care Centre and its implementation
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
