Brooks 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 Brooks attending a meeting.”

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

Your Brooks chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! Brooks chiropractic patients at Soft Health and Healing Clinic know this for sure. Your Brooks chiropractor accepts the status as the Brooks back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows 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 Brooks.

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 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 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 options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote 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 successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands this. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that Brooks back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Brooks chiropractic care and then rely on Soft Health and Healing Clinic to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to prevent future adverse health and/or spinal pain conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the job your Brooks chiropractor embraces! What do Brooks back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. This 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 lessening the cost of care. (6) Four is potentially curbing 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is here to do its part to help.
