Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center [presents how medical physicians are referring to complementary health approaches more, particularly for chiropractic manipulation and massage. 

PHYSICIAN REFERRALS AND BENEFITS

Physician referrals to complementary health approaches (CHAs) is noteworthy. An inquiry found that 53.1% of all US physicians recommended at least one CHA to patients in the past 12 months. The most common approaches suggested were acupuncture, yoga, herbs/nonvitamin supplements, osteopathic/chiropractic manipulation, and massage. Female physicians were more inclined than their male counterparts to suggest for massage, supplements, acupuncture and mind-body therapies. Psychiatrists, OB/GYNs, and pediatricians were less inclined to suggest chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation than general and family practitioners who most often suggested manipulation (54%) and massage (52.6%). (1) And it has been documented that first contact care by a chiropractor for issues like back pain, shoulder and hip pain brings about lower cost of care as well as clinically comparable pain relief and greater satisfaction levels. (2) We enjoy seeing this referral among healthcare providers and physicians of all types! Paramus chiropractic patients may well benefit from such collaboration in costs savings, pain relief, and confidence in the care they receive.

Listen to the PODCAST with Dr. Kim Lombardy on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson who works with physicians of all professions to benefit patients and especially his patient with hip pain and a slipped disc that troubled her after her hip surgery. His use of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management makes his care special.

Paramus holiday joy and even fun with Santa are analyzed as to their potential for preventing divorce and increasing happiness.  

TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoy the Holiday Season!

Just for fun, take a look at these Danish articles about the advantages of holiday joy and Santa fun! One analysis of medical doctors whose November conferences (with coffee) were contrasted to December conferences (without coffee but with Santa). The Santa visits enhanced the joy to the level of meetings with coffee. (The authors point out that the research study was “kept secret for the participant in accordance with the tradition of Santa’s elves.”) (3) Another Danish study analyzed issues like belief in Santa and relationship length that may impact divorce rates of doctors just after the holidays. Divorce rates rose least for general practitioners whose relationships were also reported to be longer that other medical subspecialties. Believing in Santa was beneficial only for psychiatrists! These authors’ final recommendation was to enjoy the Christmas fun but don’t rely on Santa for the present shopping. Everyone must do that for himself/herself! (4) If you see Santa in your Paramus chiropractor’s office, it’s a good thing for all!
