Healthy News - December 2019

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre [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 interesting. A survey found that 53.1% of all US physicians recommended at least one CHA to patients in the past 12 months. The most common approaches suggested were acupuncture, yoga, herbs/nonvitamin supplements, osteopathic/chiropractic manipulation, and massage. Female physicians were more likely than their male counterparts to refer for massage, supplements, acupuncture and mind-body therapies. Psychiatrists, OB/GYNs, and pediatricians were less inclined to recommend chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation than general and family practitioners who most often recommended manipulation (54%) and massage (52.6%). (1) And it’s been recorded that first contact care by a chiropractor for issues like back pain, shoulder and hip pain brings about lower cost of care as well as clinically comparable pain relief and higher satisfaction levels. (2) We enjoy seeing this referral among healthcare providers and physicians of all sorts! Toronto chiropractic patients may well benefit from such collaboration in costs savings, pain relief, and confidence in the care they receive.

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

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

TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoy 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 compared to December conferences (without coffee but with Santa). The Santa visits enhanced the joy to the level of meetings with coffee. (The authors point out that the research study 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 found to be longer that other medical subspecialties. Belief in Santa was beneficial only for psychiatrists! These authors’ final recommendation was to join in 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 Toronto chiropractor’s office, it is a good thing for all!
