PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - Dr Les Bailey discusses the effect on complementary medicine by the global recession. Dr Les Bailey phd, DO, Acopm, Apta ( int part )

The global recession has had a dramatic effect on the economy of every country in the world, affecting people from all walks of life, often with devastating consequences on families.
People worry about the rising prices of household bills, heating, electric, food and motor fuel. This is happening at the same time as incomes have fallen in almost every sector.
In short, the country is in a mess, its people depressed and gloomy, worrying about how to pay the next bill.
One sector to suffer is  complementary medicine eg osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists, homoeopaths, herbalists, massage therapists etc etc.
One may assume I am talking about the practitioners, but the effect is way more far reaching. This recession carries through to the patients and the already heavily burdened NHS.
In years gone by, if someone was suffering back pain, it was the norm to visit the local osteopath or chiropractor, missing out the GP, and saving the NHS time and money.
The osteopath or chiropractor was able to diagnose both problems they could treat, and on few occasions would have to refer back to the NHS for problems needing operations or further investigation.
In this recession, there is a lack of money to be spent on complementary health care, and so the patient heads to the GP.
A number of things can happen here. Usually the patient is given anti inflammatories as a first line attack. the patient feels out of pain and continues to do what caused the problem in the first place.
If the problem was acute, it may eventually heal of its own accord, but, in all probability, there have been days lost from work and sick pay to come from the treasury, coupled with lost productivity at work ( the osteopath or chiropractor would have got the patient recovered alot faster )
When the initial problem has not resolved, the poor overburdened GP has to send the patient for X-rays or scans, often revealing nothing at all. The cost is now escalating fast...
The next referral for the GP is to the physiotherapists, who are already overworked, and, thanks to the new "hands off" approach, can do nothing but give exercises that the patient is 70% not going to bother to do anyway. The cost to the treasury escalates even further.....
More GP visits for even stronger painkillers ensue, and the financial cost to both the treasury and the patient has spiralled out of all proportion to the original pain they started with.
The same could be said for homoeopathy, herbal medicine, private podiatry, hypnotherapy, etc etc.
Recession reminds us all of the important role in society played by the legions of complementary therapists in the UK, both keeping people out of pain, and lifting, at least a part, of the ever growing heavy workloads of the countrys GP's.
