Manahawkin 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 Manahawkin attending a meeting.”

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

Your Manahawkin chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Manahawkin chiropractic patients at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center know this for sure. Your Manahawkin chiropractor accepts the reputation as the Manahawkin back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t shy at all about telling everyone in Manahawkin.

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 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 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 approaches like spinal manipulation are reasonable options. (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 was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands this. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center grasps that Manahawkin back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Manahawkin chiropractic care and then rely on Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance 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 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s absolutely the job your Manahawkin chiropractor embraces! What do Manahawkin back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This 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 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to do its share to help.
