Whole Body Balance achieves the same outcomes in 47% fewer visits than the Colorado average for physical therapy and chiropractic clinics (data source: Colorado Integrated Care Network Statewide outcome review). How do we do it?
1. A Stepwise Care Approach
Whole Body Balance is committed to identifying the right care, at the right time, with the right provider (the "3 R's"). We call this our Stepwise Approach. In your first discussion with a Whole Body Balance provider the goal is to determine the "3 R's". Once the 3 R's are determined we know whether in-clinic care is necessary, if this care can be delivered by Whole Body Balance, or if it is more appropriate to be treated at another specialist in our network. For you statistical folks, 96% of neck and low back complaints that present to us are treated successfully at Whole Body Balance. Afterall, we've built our service line around these conditions.
2. Multidisciplinary Appointments
Single-disciplinary care, such as only seeing a chiropractor or physical therapist, is not as effective as multidisciplinary care. At Whole Body Balance most patients will receive multiple types of treatment, such as chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy, in a single visit. This approach to care is shown to contribute to a 47% reduction in the number of visits needed to achieve a desired outcome. Put simply, if you want to get better faster, multidisciplinary care at Whole Body Balance is your best choice.
3. Patient Engagement
The most important member of the care team is you, the patient! Therefore, we feel it important that we maintain open lines of communication, track progress even when you're not in the clinic, and give you the tools and knowledge needed to get you feeling great as quickly as possible. We use an interactive app that gives you access to a virtual trainer to walk you through recommended rehabilitation exercises, allows you to openly communicate with your providers, and tracks your response to care daily. This information ensures prompt and correct decisions regarding your "next steps" are made.
4. Tracking Outcomes and Response to Care
This aspect of Whole Body Balance care is important. Have you ever had to make a very important decision in the blink of an eye? That's what providers face 15-20 times per day. Unsurprisingly, it leads to a lot of unnecessary care, costs, and mistakes in healthcare. That is why Whole Body Balance providers track your response to care daily to determine whether you are on track or a change of plan is necessary.
