Most Chiropractic Clinic Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you know your spine and what it needs? Does your physician? Does your insurance provider (ie, Medicare)? Most Chiropractic Clinic prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor assesses your low back when there’s low back pain, your neck when you have neck pain, your neck when there’s arm pain, your low back when you have leg pain, your thoracic spine when you have thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor ”gets” your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer doesn’t. The chiropractic profession endeavors to deliver the research to the insurers to cover essential treatment for your spine while your Murfreesboro chiropractor strives to communicate clearly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your optimal clinical outcome: relief of pain.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data doesn’t tell the whole story about back pain. In one study that compared 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 groups do not agree. Self-reported data regarding low back pain (21.2%) was higher than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients based on data varied in several areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an underestimated prevalence of low back pain. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.

YOUR BACK PAIN

In a study that specifically examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient point of view and the objective testing angle revealed that these two measures do not correlate well either. At least in this comparison, real input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors who filled out objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to notice that while these two sources do not correlate well, each is valuable in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor uses this evidence to care for your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at Most Chiropractic Clinic. A fascinating study of chiropractic students found that with each year of learning the students became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is prepared to take care of Murfreesboro back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of useful chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers write today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may inhibit unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one such non-drug pain management offering. In a study of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients filled an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who utilize chiropractic are shown to have better clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries a year later, less opioid-linked disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less expense (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.
