Murfreesboro Back Pain Option: Control It

Control not cure. That’s a difficult view to accept when you are in pain. Then again, for many back pain and neck pain patients, any relief is welcome. Most Chiropractic Clinic treats many Murfreesboro back pain and Murfreesboro neck pain patients who suffer with chronic pain. Fortunately, spine pain patients who opt for chiropractic care with realistic goals often obtain relief.

CURE vs MANAGEMENT

When patients visit doctors, they usually want a “fix”. They desire to be “cured” from their ailment be it a cold or a headache or an infection even their back pain or neck pain. Researchers explained that medicine and healthcare primarily 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 realize that their condition is theirs for life and that there is help for containing that pain by on-going chiropractic care turn into appreciative patients. Most Chiropractic Clinic sees them all the time. The healthcare “curative” model may not change any time soon, but the patients’ healthcare services 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 had pain for a shorter time and sought a medical cure. The rest of the patients looked for on-going care to prevent the pain from returning, prevent it from getting worse, and have temporary relief of their pain. These patients had lower pain levels for a longer time. (1) Patients’ hopes impact their pain relief.

HOPES OF BACK PAIN PATIENTS

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