New Roads Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

When I check into a hotel for a conference, the conversation often goes like this:

Front desk staff: “So what are you here for?”

Me: “I’m a chiropractor from New Roads attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My mother has the worst back pain and pain down the leg!”

Your New Roads chiropractor welcomes this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! New Roads chiropractic patients at New Roads Chiropractic Center know this for sure. Your New Roads chiropractor accepts the reputation as the New Roads back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! New Roads Chiropractic Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reluctant at all about telling everyone in New Roads.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup teamed up with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that found that 78% of American adults would rather use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to cope with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults considered physical therapy and chiropractic care as quite effective and safe when compared to pain medications. Aaron Carroll MD writes for the New York Times, and in a blog post called “For Bad Backs, It’s Time to Rethink Biases about Chiropractors,” he emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are reasonable alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is viewed by society as a profession of health care providers who are specialists in spine care as their education, scope of practice, and educational accrediting and testing involve spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care was effective in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center gets this. New Roads Chiropractic Center knows that New Roads back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the New Roads chiropractic care and then count on New Roads Chiropractic Center to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to prevent future unpleasant health and/or spinal pain issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many responsibilities: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), give evidence-based care like spinal manipulation, manual therapy, rehab/exercise, education about the condition, counseling to help the back pain sufferer accept the condition and its outcome expectations as well as commit to its treatment plan, and direct all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s absolutely the role your New Roads chiropractor enjoys most! What do New Roads back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access benefits in several ways. One is increasing the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is reducing the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly curbing the opioid epidemic. The American College of Physicians’ recommendations for back pain sufferers specifically say that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) New Roads Chiropractic Center is here to do its share to help.
