Living life as you want is all Augusta folks want, isn’t it? Back pain interrupts that longing for 80% of Augusta people at some point in our lives. Depending on whom the Augusta back pain sufferer visits first, back surgery with or without fusion may be recommended.

THE FIRST DOCTOR SEEN INFLUENCES THE CARE ROUTE
Choice prompts the route and cost of Augusta back pain care. The cost of chiropractic care for the treatment of lumbar intervertebral disc herniation patients is just 2% of total money spent on back pain. A test of conservative non-operative care is suggested prior to surgery for patients who have lumbar disc herniation. (1) About 42.7% of workers first seeing a surgeon had surgery in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor originally. (2)
MULTIDISCIPLINARY OVERVIEW COMMITTEES REDUCE SURGERY
First-time disc surgeries decreased by approximately two thirds for patients cared for in a multidisciplinary facility. (3) When cases of patients suggested for a fusion back surgery were evaluated by a multidisciplinary committee, non-surgical care was recommended for simply 58%. The fusion surgical approach suggested for 28% of the cases was changed. (4) Another multidisciplinary overview resulted in changed approaches|was changed to care for back pain without lumbar spinal fusion. Exercise, psychological therapy, rehabilitation, spinal manipulation, massage and acupuncture for chronic low back pain continues to be favored in the spine research. Pain reduction is superior than functional improvement. (5) Augusta back pain patients are wanting pain reduction, so this is wonderful!
SEEING THE MIND’S ROLE IN BACK PAIN
In dealing with Augusta back pain, care givers – including surgeons – are acknowledging the role the mind has in the care of chronic pain patients who have multiple contributing factors. Their pain is not as easy as explaining that he or she has a disc herniation. Various factors come together to cause pain and trouble in overcoming that pain. The body and mind respond via the sympathetic nervous system. Doctors who can see and help empower a patient to picture a positive response to care, to visualize a lessening of symptoms rather than concentrate on them may help improve back pain patients’ outlook and future. (6) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows that dealing with pain, especially pain that has been around a while that other care hasn’t seemed to help, is disheartening. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic also has been a part of turning around such pain for patients. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic explains the source of pain, the plan to relieve, control and/or resolve the pain, and the hope to escape future pain.
