Targeted Treatment Produces Better Results For Patients

Back pain comes in many forms, and in order to treat it effectively medical professionals need to do a thorough prognostic screening. That’s the conclusion of a study published recently in the UK and reported in the medical journal The Lancet.

In this study researchers divided patients into two groups: one group would receive back pain treatment that was targeted to their particular type of back pain, while the other group received non-targeted treatment. The patients in the targeted-care group were evaluated based on their level of risk. Their evaluation was used to tailor a treatment program, including different levels of physiological and psychological treatment depending on their risk assessment.

The result? Not surprisingly, patients with targeted treatment showed much more significant improvement than those without targeted care. Specifically, the targeted care from a warrington chiropractor took fewer days off from work due to back pain, they functioned better physically and emotionally, they had higher quality of life, and they had reduced disability due to back pain.

There were economic benefits as well. The patients of a warrington pa chiropractor with targeted treatment had fewer wasted visits to doctors and other medical practitioners in the long term, which saved them money on their medical bills.

The study concluded that a good prognostic screening program would save time and money, and give medium and high risk patients faster relief from their back pain.

If this advice is followed in the medical profession, it will be a benefit for back pain sufferers.
