Severna Park 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 Severna Park attending a meeting.”

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

Your Severna Park chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Severna Park chiropractic patients at Back And Neck Care Center certainly know this. Your Severna Park chiropractor welcomes the reputation as the Severna Park back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Back And Neck Care Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful at all about letting everyone know in Severna Park.

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 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 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 options like spinal manipulation are practical 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 believed that chiropractic care was successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Back And Neck Care Center understands this. Back And Neck Care Center sees that Severna Park back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Severna Park chiropractic care and then trust Back And Neck Care Center to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve 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 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 coordinate all facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s precisely the role your Severna Park chiropractor enjoys most! What do Severna Park back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. It helps in several ways. One is increasing 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 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) Back And Neck Care Center is here to do its share to help.
