Healthy News - December 2019

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn [presents how medical physicians are referring to complementary health approaches more, particularly for chiropractic manipulation and massage. 

PHYSICIAN REFERRALS AND BENEFITS

Physician referrals to complementary health approaches (CHAs) is noteworthy. A survey discovered that 53.1% of all US physicians referred patients to at least one CHA in the past year. The most common approaches advocated were acupuncture, yoga, herbs/nonvitamin supplements, osteopathic/chiropractic manipulation, and massage. Female doctors were more inclined than their male counterparts to suggest for massage, supplements, acupuncture and mind-body therapies. Psychiatrists, OB/GYNs, and pediatricians were less likely to suggest chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation than general and family practitioners who most often suggested manipulation (54%) and massage (52.6%). (1) And it has been documented that first contact care by a chiropractor for issues like back pain, shoulder and hip pain results in lower cost of care as well as clinically similar pain relief and greater satisfaction levels. (2) We love to see this referral among healthcare providers and physicians of all types! Ashburn chiropractic patients may well benefit from such cooperation in costs savings, pain relief, and assurance in the care they receive.

Listen to the PODCAST with Dr. Kim Lombardy on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson who works with physicians of all professions to benefit patients and especially this patient with hip pain and a slipped disc that bothered her after her hip surgery. His application of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management sets him apart.

Ashburn holiday joy and even fun with Santa are studied as to their potential for preventing divorce and increasing happiness.  

TIP OF THE MONTH: Embrace the Holiday Season!

Just for fun, check out these Danish reports about the advantages of holiday joy and Santa fun! One analysis of medical doctors whose November conferences (with coffee) were contrasted to December conferences (without coffee but with Santa). The Santa visits boosted the joy to the level of meetings with coffee. (The authors point out that the trial was “kept secret for the participant in accordance with the tradition of Santa’s elves.”) (3) Another Danish study looked at issues like belief in Santa and relationship length that may influence divorce rates of doctors just after the holidays. Divorce rates rose least for general practitioners whose relationships were also reported to be longer that other medical subspecialties. Belief in Santa was helpful only for psychiatrists! These authors’ final recommendation was to enjoy the Christmas fun but don’t rely on Santa for the present shopping. Everyone must do that for himself/herself! (4) If you see Santa in your Ashburn chiropractor’s office, it is a good thing for all!
