How many doctors
have you sought for your current pain condition whether
it is back, neck, leg or arm pain? Quite a few Eugene chiropractic
patients who come to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic for the first
time will report that they have seen
many other healthcare practitioners with some relief or hardly any
relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic talks with many frustrated, in-pain people…and
helps many of them, too.
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE APPOINTMENTS
Patients with chronic pain benefit from
shared medical consultations focused on a multidisciplinary,
nonpharmacological treatment approach. The participating integrative
and lifestyle medical professionals shared education
about non-pharmacological approaches, the causes of pain, and how
pain impacts lifestyle choices. Suggested
care methods incorporated chiropractic, yoga, medication,
breathing, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage, and cognitive behavioral
therapy. Patients had less pain and better measures
of physical, mental, and social health without increased use of
opioids. (1) These kinds of outcomes render such integration of services in Eugene healthcare quite enticing!
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is ready!
INTEGRATING CHIROPRACTIC INTO HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Many healthcare systems today now encourage pain patients to use complementary and integrative health
methods – self-care - for pain management as well as 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 reported
was spine and truncal pain (70.5%). Chiropractic was the most common form
of care. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic welcomes patients who seek care they know
will help. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recognizes the value of integrating tools
into the daily schedules of Eugene 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 effectively help patients seeking
relief of their back pain, integrated healthcare delivery systems persist in including 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 top the
list of reasons for disability globally.
Chiropractors are experienced and deliver non-drug
treatment that meets published clinical guidelines of care. Researchers write
that improving collaboration between medical and chiropractic physicians or integrating chiropractors
into medical settings like hospitals or community health centers will improve
access to evidence-based care for musculoskeletal pain conditions. (4)
Evidence-based care exercises the best evidence
from research to form clinical treatment decisions that result
in patient satisfaction. That’s what Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic and its use
of the chiropractic treatment system, the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain
Management, provides: evidence-based care.
