Dr. Kinsler and Dr. Elliott Recognized by the NCQA

Treatment for uncomplicated low back pain varies widely. While most physicians follow the recommended approach of pain management and gradual return to physical activity, some prematurely prescribe costly imaging, epidural steroid injections-or refer their patients to surgery.

NCQA, the National Committee for Quality Assurance, has a Back Pain Recognition Program (BPRP).  This program seeks to recognize medical and chiropractic physicians who deliver superior care to millions of Americans who suffer from low back pain. The BPRP program consists of 13 clinical measures and three structural standards that address the broad spectrum of low back pain and focus on underuse, misuse and overuse of treatment modalities.

NCQA developed BPRP requirements from widely accepted medical evidence, with significant input from physician specialists and health plan and employer representatives.

Our office has been recognized as part of this program and Dr. Elliott and I are among only a dozen physicians at this time in New York State to achieve this honor.

We feel the NCQA BPRP program is a step in the right direction toward evidence based chiropractic treatment and are thankful for the opportunity to earn this recognition.

    Congratulations. Anytime someone outside of your office recognizes your efforts it is a good thing. I’m glad to hear it, and I know your patients can feel more confident in you because of it.
