Beebe Healthcare announces HealthyBack for chronic back/neck pain

December 27, 2013

Beebe Healthcare announces Beebe HealthyBack, a comprehensive treatment solution for patients who suffer from chronic back and neck pain. Beebe HealthyBack was formed through a joint venture with Pure HealthyBack, whose mission is to redefine the way back and neck pain are treated in the United States.

Beebe HealthyBack is a physician-driven, person-centered treatment program unlike any other for patients suffering from chronic back and neck pain. Those who complete the program report significant increases in function and quality of life and decreases in pain. Patients often say, “I got my life back!” when they are able to walk, dance, hike, play and run again for the first time in years.

The Beebe HealthyBack clinic, which will be in the College Park Medical Pavilion in Georgetown, has been architecturally designed to welcome patients with a tranquil, spa-like setting for those who commit to the comprehensive treatment and wellness experience.

Physical therapists guide patients to strengthen their muscles and increase range of motion using Pure HealthyBack’s proprietary Food and Drug Administration-registered medical equipment with results affirmed by 25 years of scientific research in top medical journals.

In addition to a medical director and physical therapists, the healthcare team that supports and guides HealthyBack patients includes a health coach, a wellness coach, and physical therapy assistants and technicians. The team’s goal is to functionally restore patients’ muscles by improving strength and mobility, and to work with patients to address other health issues that contribute to success, such as stress and weight management, heart health, and more.

“Chronic back and neck pain costs the U.S. healthcare system over $100 billion every year,” said Beebe Healthcare President and CEO Jeffrey Fried, FACHE. “These costs trickle down to the local level as well; we would like to get these costs under control. For this reason and because this program has proven results with patients, we believe that offering this to the community will provide great value. It also supports our vision in helping to make Sussex County one of the healthiest counties in the nation.”

Pure HealthyBack President Jim Evanger believes this partnership is a strong fit for the two organizations. “Beebe Healthcare is committed to providing exceptional quality to southern Delaware,” he said. “Together, we are certain that we will improve outcomes and quality of life for those who suffer from chronic back and neck pain while reducing costs for both patients and providers.”

The grand opening of Beebe HealthyBack is planned for spring 2014. Beebe HealthyBack will begin scheduling patient appointments in January. For more information on the Beebe HealthyBack, call 302-645-3983.
