Tonawanda 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 Tonawanda attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My father has the worst back pain and pain down the leg!”

Your Tonawanda chiropractor enjoys this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Tonawanda chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation know this for sure. Your Tonawanda chiropractor embraces the reputation as the Tonawanda back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reluctant at all about telling everyone in Tonawanda.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup teamed up with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that revealed that 78% of American adults would prefer to use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to cope with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults thought physical therapy and chiropractic care as quite effective and safe when compared to pain meds. 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 approaches like spinal manipulation are rational options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is seen 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 revolve around spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understands this. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation grasps that Tonawanda back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Tonawanda chiropractic care and then count on Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to avert 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 play many tasks: 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 organize all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s just the role your Tonawanda chiropractor embraces! What do Tonawanda back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps in a few ways. One is increasing the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping deal with the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is reducing the cost of care. (6) Four is potentially reining in the opioid epidemic. The American College of Physicians’ recommendations for back pain sufferers specifically state that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is here to do its part to help.
