Encouraging Data on Chiropractic Toronto Back Pain Relief

Stats. Stats. Stats. We humans are well studied: our illnesses, our behaviors, our lives. In healthcare, data and stats can be quite helpful in improving care, particularly path for low back pain management from conservative, non-surgical to surgical when required. In Toronto Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is experienced in managing this flow of back pain care and in referring when/if needed.


The worldwide top cause of disability is low back pain. Diagnosis of the cause of low back pain – spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, non-specific and specific low back pain – is central to managing it. A new study commented that low back examination tests alone aren’t always helpful on their own. (1) That is  the reason that Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre correlates everything - your history, current pain, exam tests’ results, imaging, and more - to establish a diagnosis and a treatment plan. And not all back pain sufferers have to go to specialists like spinal surgeons. Even the surgeons appreciate it when patients who need their skill (surgical skills) are referred to them. A recent study pointed out that of 500 cases referred to a neurosurgeon, only 22% were surgical candidates. 80% of referrals made during the study’s time period were considered not appropriate. The researchers wrote that “triaging approaches led by musculoskeletal experts may improve referral appropriateness to specialized care.” (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre agrees and is ready to perform that role. Your Toronto chiropractor specializes in the diagnosis and management of low back pain and is well aware of when to refer for specialized treatment like advanced imaging, surgery, etc.


In the chiropractic corner of healthcare, Care Response is a packed database of info from chiropractic patients around the world. It’s been collecting data for over 10 years regarding patient satisfaction. Two main points of feedback were on what chiropractic patients thought was good about their care and what could be improved. The good comprised clinical outcomes (less pain, better function, being understood as having pain and its cause), examination and description of the condition and its treatment, professionalism, friendliness, feeling valued as a person, safety, comfort, and punctuality. There is always room for improvement, and patients shared that they wanted to not be rushed during the visit, wanted to feel understood, wanted good outcomes, etc. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre tries hard to focus on you during your time at our Toronto chiropractic clinic.


As your Toronto chiropractor, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre strives to deliver the ‘good’! And we take it one step further to boost quality of life for our low back pain patients. The latest series of questions to help evaluate patients for these outcomes is known as PROMIS that encompasses function, pain interference, pain intensity, fatigue, sleep, depression, anxiety, satisfaction in social life, mental health, etc. The bottom line from all the assembled data found that patients (1) improved significantly and felt they did, (2) improved significantly but did not think they did, (3) didn’t improve significantly but felt they did, (4) didn’t improve significantly or report feeling better. (4) We strive for the ideal #1 outcome explained above, and we want you to tell us how you feel you are.
