2004 Oct
The Journal of the American Chiropractic Association (JACA) Online

Abstract: Examines widespread chronicity, coupled with disability, in the U.S. workforce, and discusses response to this problem by a multidisciplinary set of health care providers. Suggests multispecialty approaches to specific spinal conditions and more general musculoskeletal injuries. Emphasizes importance of a concentrated, integrated approach to problems, rather than fragmented treatment--or delays--and protected, ineffective treatment strategies. Provides the model of the Pain Management Specialists of Indianapolis (PMSI) in working with patients whose chronic pain affects productivity and lifestyle. Shows how PMSI approaches the goal of improving function, decreasing pain, reducing medications, current treatment costs, and subsequent health care utilization. Includes a discussion of the psychological component in chronic pain.
