SEPTEMBER IS DRUG-FREE PAIN MANAGEMENT AWARENESS MONTH IN AMERICA

According to new guidelines developed by the American College of Physicians, "conservative non-drug treatments should be favored over drugs for most back pain. The guidelines include a review of more that 150 current studies and conclude . . . the new guidelines recommend non-drug therapies such as heat, massage, acupuncture or spinal manipulation, which is often done by a chiropractor," This quote was published in the Wall Street Journal in connection with the proclamation naming September 2017 Drug-Free Pain Management Awareness Month.

EARLY HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC

Wilk, et al, vs. American Medical Association (AMA) Lawsuit. Another inquiry that further validated chiropractic came about in 1987 through an antitrust suit filed by four doctors of chiropractic against the AMA. A federal appellate court judge ruled that the AMA had engaged in a "lengthy, systematic, successful, and unlawful boycott" of chiropractic.During the legal proceedings, studies comparing chiropractic care to medical care were presented that showed how chiropractors were "twice as effective as medical physicians, for comparable injuries, in returning injured workers to work at every level of injury severity."

Ontario Ministry of Health. In 1993, the Ontario Ministry of Health published the Manga Report, which was a review of literature on the most effective and cost-effective treatments for of low-back pain. After reviewing all available international evidence, the researchers concluded that chiropractic is "greatly superior to medical treatment in terms of scientific validity, safety, cost-effectiveness, and patient satisfaction."

Research for Today and Tomorrow

In the May, 2009 issue of Consumer Reports, A population of 14,000 patients with lower back pain reported a satisfaction level twice as high for the patients who received treatments from Chiropractic Doctors compared with those patients who were treated by primary care pain Doctors with MD degrees. When Chiropractic Doctors were compared with MD specialists the satisfaction level in patients seeing a Chiropractor was fifteen percent higher.

The boom of brain and neuroscience research has supplied new methods and ways of studying the neurological side of chiropractic. The specialty that has emerged focuses on neurological science and the chiropractic application. Dr. Weimer has studied and applied this new research in completing four years of post-doctoral study in Chiropractic Neurology. He is the first Doctor in Modesto to be named a Board Eligible Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology. This allows Dr. Weimer to be on in cutting edge in diagnosing and applying neck pain brain based therapy to chronic pain issues and be more effective in helping his patients reach a level of full recovery of health..

The purpose of chiropractic research has been and continues to be to provide information needed to document and improve chiropractic health care worldwide. The chiropractic profession has seen advances once thought impossible due to the impact of scientific research. For example, federal grants for chiropractic research are now a reality. There is an ever-growing public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care. The Department of Defense formed a committee to introduce chiropractic services into the United States military. Several managed-care organizations now recognize Chiropractors as qualified primary-care providers.

The current research has verified what patients and Doctors of Chiropractic have been saying for thirty years. Chiropractic is very effective and it is just that simple.

Testimonials

  • "Weimer Chiropractic is committed to helping me as long as it takes to find the best solution. I never have to worry they will back out or give up if a solution is not reached immediately, which has been a problem for me in other places. They also allow me to text the office for a same day appointment on days when I wake up in pain from sleeping in a bad position. They always dress so professionally here, the entire staff makes an effort to maintain a professional appearance. When comparing them with other Chiropractors I have visited for the same conditions of neck, back, leg and foot pain, Dr. Weimer is the best."
