Manchester 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 Manchester attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My back is killing me!”

Your Manchester chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Manchester chiropractic patients at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries certainly know this. Your Manchester chiropractor accepts the reputation as the Manchester back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reticent at all about letting everyone know in Manchester.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have 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 rather use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to deal 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 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are reasonable 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 believed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries gets this. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries grasps that Manchester back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Manchester chiropractic care and then rely on Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to point 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 trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform many tasks: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), provide 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’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s precisely the role your Manchester chiropractor enjoys most! What do Manchester back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It benefits in several 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 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is here to do its part to help.
