Two Rivers 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 Two Rivers attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? I have this pain down my leg…”

Your Two Rivers chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! Two Rivers chiropractic patients at Lakeshore Chiropractic certainly know this. Your Two Rivers chiropractor accepts the status as the Two Rivers back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Lakeshore 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 Two Rivers.

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 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 stressed 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 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 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% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Lakeshore Chiropractic gets this. Lakeshore Chiropractic sees that Two Rivers back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Two Rivers chiropractic care and then rely on Lakeshore Chiropractic to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve 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 perform many responsibilities: 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the role your Two Rivers chiropractor enjoys most! What do Two Rivers back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access benefits 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 say that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Lakeshore Chiropractic is here to do its share to help.
