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

How well do you understand your spine and what it needs? Does your doctor? Does your insurance provider (ie, Medicare)? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor assesses your low back when there is low back pain, your neck when there’s neck pain, your neck when you have arm pain, your low back when there’s leg pain, your thoracic spine when there’s thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor knows your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer does not. The chiropractic profession strives to deliver the research to the insurers to pay for essential treatment for your spine while your Fort Wayne chiropractor endeavors to communicate clearly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your best clinical outcome: back pain relief, neck pain relief, arm pain relief, leg pain relief, etc.

YOUR INSURER

Administrators’ data doesn’t tell the entire story about back pain. In one study comparing self-reported low back pain to data assembled by health administrations that track low back pain via billing codes and the like discovered that these two sources don’t 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 a few areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an undervalued prevalence of low back pain. (1) Aaron 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 expressly examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient angle and the objective testing angle revealed that these two measures don’t correlate well either. At least in this comparison, actual input was from people: patients filling out questionnaires and doctors doing objective tests. These findings led 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 Fort Wayne chiropractor uses this evidence to take care of your spine.

YOUR CHIROPRACTOR

Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence leads the spine relief treatment plan at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. A fascinating study of chiropractic students revealed how as each year of school passed they became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is ready to take care of Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of useful chiropractic spine care keeps growing! Researchers report today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may inhibit unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one type of non-drug pain management offering. In an analysis of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients got an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who utilize chiropractic are found 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 more satisfaction. (5) These are not bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
