Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain while not avoiding life. That’s also the goal of your La Grande chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership involving the La Grande back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A new survey found that chiropractors like yours at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC take pleasure in their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain as well as build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients via an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and desirable clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your La Grande chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - especially in managing spine pain issues is a big part of daily practice.


Researchers wondered how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon added to the number of non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the addition of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults, and the addition of one chiropractor added 18.7 conservative care episodes and decreased 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 elder adults. The researchers state certain limitations in their study as they extracted a specific group of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one episode of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the study. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability affects how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability increases or decreases. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community reduced spending. (3) In La Grande, back pain sufferers have a partner at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC who can help them with in-office care as well as at-home self-care.


Medicine is realizing that the one who is really at the core of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person experiencing pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and needs suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to pursue more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to handle and prevent pain), and how to be assured of their independent pain management’s effectiveness. These all take guidance from clinicians regarding education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) La Grande back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC must communicate how each sees back pain management to best reduce the pain!
