Chronic Spinal Pain

Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek medical attention. Chronic spinal pain is the number one type of chronic pain in which can be problematic and costly to treat. Acute care guidelines have established the benefits of chiropractic management which include reduced costs and earlier return to work.

A recent article by Farabaugh, Dehen, and Hawk (2010) sought....."to develop a broad based multidisciplinary consensus of medical and chiropractic clinical experts representing mainstream medical and chiropractic practice to produce a document designated to provide standardized parameters of care and documentation" (p.484) The authors state, "There is increasing evidence in the scientific literature supporting the long tradition of patients seeking chiropractic care when dealing with chronic spinal pain" (Farabaugh et al., 2010, p. 491). They further state, "The consensus process utilizing a multidisciplinary panel was successful in developing a set of case management recommendations...This document provides a case management compass for an evidence-based and reasonable approach to the chiropractic management of chronic spine pain patients who require ongoing care" (Farabaugh) et al., 2010, p. 491).

It is important when co-treating for chronic spinal pain conditions to work with clinicians that understand the scientific literature ad are aware of evidence-based publications. To obtain this paper, please contact the research educator below.
