Burlington and Hamilton 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 Burlington and Hamilton attending a meeting.”

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

Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor welcomes this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients at Spinal Care Clinic certainly know this. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor welcomes the status as the Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Spinal Care Clinic understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t bashful at all about letting everyone know in Burlington and Hamilton.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have 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 prefer to use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to deal 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 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 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% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Spinal Care Clinic gets this. Spinal Care Clinic grasps that Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care and then rely on Spinal Care Clinic 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 educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform many responsibilities: 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor embraces! What do Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access benefits in several ways. One is increasing the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address 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) Spinal Care Clinic is here to do its part to help.
