Williamson 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 Williamson attending a meeting.”

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

Your Williamson chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain forever! Williamson chiropractic patients at Apple Country Chiropractic certainly know this. Your Williamson chiropractor embraces the status as the Williamson back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Apple Country Chiropractic understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not shy in the least about letting everyone know in Williamson.

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 considered 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 approaches like spinal manipulation are practical alternatives. (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 was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic gets this. Apple Country Chiropractic grasps that Williamson back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Williamson chiropractic care and then rely on Apple Country Chiropractic to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance 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 take on 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 a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s just the role your Williamson chiropractor enjoys most! What do Williamson back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It benefits in several 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) Apple Country Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
