Treating Neck Pain Doesn’t Have to Be a Pain in the Neck: Using Guidelines and Best Practices to Inform Your Treatment of Patients with Neck Pain
Neck pain is one of the most common reasons for a chiropractic visit. With the rise of an office-based culture and the predominance of screens, millions of people around the world are finding themselves with life affecting neck pain and symptoms. Chiropractors have been successfully treating neck pain for over a century, but how do we KNOW what we have been doing is supported by evidence? Are we doing the right things? How do we handle complicated patients? How long do we treat them before we seek collaboration? What exactly ARE the best practices? This webinar will explore the nature of clinical evidence, the differences between best practices and clinical practice guidelines, and how the Chiropractic profession, through the Clinical Compass, is bridging the gap between evidence and everyday practice.
Learning objectives – after attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Recognize differences between a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) and a Best Practices Document
- Explain current Best Practices for the Chiropractic Management of Patients with Neck Pain
- Describe how the Clinical Compass and other practicing Chiropractors can get involved in the research process and contribute to the overall body of Chiropractic knowledge
