Mandeville 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 Mandeville attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My neck is really hurting.”

Your Mandeville chiropractor welcomes this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Mandeville chiropractic patients at Mandeville Chiropractic certainly know this. Your Mandeville chiropractor embraces the status as the Mandeville back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Mandeville Chiropractic knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reticent in the least about letting everyone know in Mandeville.

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 showed 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 very 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug methods like spinal manipulation are rational alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded 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 was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Mandeville Chiropractic understands this. Mandeville Chiropractic knows that Mandeville back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Mandeville chiropractic care and then count on Mandeville Chiropractic to guide 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 educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play 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 a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the job your Mandeville chiropractor embraces! What do Mandeville back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access benefits in a few ways. One is improving 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 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) Mandeville Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
