Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

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


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A new survey reported that chiropractors like yours at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center relish their profession most as they are capable to reduce pain and increase strength, flexibility, and power alongside their patients via an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the best features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Paramus chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - particularly in managing spine pain issues is a highlight of daily practice.


Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce influenced the care of low back pain sufferers. They found that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician decreased 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 acknowledge certain limitations in their study as they extracted a specific set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who had at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which resulted in 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability impacts how much is expended 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 increased spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In Paramus, back pain sufferers have a partner at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.


Medicine is recognizing that the one who is truly at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain patient self-manages most of the time anyway and wants suggestions about how best to do that: when to seek more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to handle pain (behavioral changes to manage and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take encouragement from clinicians along the lines of education about the condition and the collaboration of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Paramus back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center need to communicate how each sees back pain management to best help the patient!
