Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That is also the goal of your Eugene chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It is a partnership among the Eugene back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A new survey found that chiropractors like yours at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic take pleasure in their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were noted as “being trained to diagnose”the foundation for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Eugene chiropractor agrees! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - especially in managing spine pain issues is a highlight of daily practice.


Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 mature adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers admit certain limitations in their study as they extracted a certain group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability impacts how much is spent on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Eugene, back pain sufferers get a partner at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.


Medicine is realizing that the one who is really at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person dealing with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain is the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and desires suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to request more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take support from clinicians along the lines of education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Eugene back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic need to communicate how each views back pain management to best reduce the pain!
