Preston Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

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

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

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

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

Your Preston chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Preston chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Associates certainly know this. Your Preston chiropractor embraces the reputation as the Preston back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Chiropractic Associates understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful in the least about telling everyone in Preston.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup partnered with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that showed 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 thought 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 rational options. (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 believed that chiropractic care was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Chiropractic Associates gets this. Chiropractic Associates knows that Preston back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Preston chiropractic care and then trust Chiropractic Associates to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to avert future adverse health and/or spinal pain issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform many tasks: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), present 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 coordinate all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with lots of responsibility! It is absolutely the job your Preston chiropractor embraces! What do Preston back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps in a few ways. One is improving 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 state that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Chiropractic Associates is here to do its share to help.
