Chicago 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 Chicago attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! I have this pain down my leg…”

Your Chicago chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Chicago chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Care know this for sure. Your Chicago chiropractor welcomes the status as the Chicago back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Chiropractic Care understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reticent at all about letting everyone know in Chicago.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup partnered 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 considered physical therapy and chiropractic care as very 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 methods like spinal manipulation are rational options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded that chiropractic is viewed by society as a profession of health care providers who are experts 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 successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Chiropractic Care gets this. Chiropractic Care knows that Chicago back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Chicago chiropractic care and then trust Chiropractic Care to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent future adverse health and/or spinal pain issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s truly the job your Chicago chiropractor enjoys most! What do Chicago back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. It helps in several ways. One is improving the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is lessening the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly 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 Care is here to do its share to help.
