NEW YORK, NY, March 25, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Covid-19 pandemic has confined millions of people to their homes, limited their medical care, especially in rural areas. It also poses health risks, including neck pain (1-6), back pain (7-11), and scoliosis (12-16). A new study from Parker University’s Journal of Contemporary Chiropractic shows that chiropractic “home care” can extend service into the comfort of patients’ homes (17).
Home care should cover a broader definition that involves the physical, mental and nutritional care of patients. “Chiropractors can arrange for community assistants to come to patients’ homes and provide care. The chiropractor may provide or arrange hands-on massage or personal rehabilitation programs, advise on pain and symptom control, monitor the progression of scoliosis, provide emotional and practical support to patients and their caregivers at home . Said by Dr. Eric Chun-Pu Chu, Principal Investigator at New York Medical Group (NYMG) and President of the Chiropractic Doctors Association of Hong Kong (CDAHK).
Chiropractic pathways can begin to define the broader scope of care – a scope that extends beyond the hospital and other clinical settings in homes – that they will need to achieve the highest quality, best outcomes. and the best experiences for their patients by mapping the different sites and modalities of care that certain patient populations may encounter along their care journey.
Recent clinical studies have shown that chiropractic rehabilitation can improve motor function even in patients with neurodegenerative (18) and neuromuscular (19-22) disorders. “Chiropractors may also involve other professionals with expertise in home care, such as neurological and medication consultation through telemedicine.” Chu said.
The COVID-19 outbreak has triggered a fundamental overhaul of home care to help improve the quality of care and patient experience while generating potential value for payers, healthcare organizations and physician groups, home care providers, technology companies and investors. The ultimate value of home care will be determined by a variety of factors in the hands of the stakeholders. Opportunity, on the other hand, can unlock the design of the current healthcare model, allowing chiropractors to play new roles in providing safe, cost-effective, and well-organized patient journeys.
