Minster 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 Minster attending a meeting.”

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

Your Minster chiropractor enjoys this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Minster chiropractic patients at Minster Chiropractic Center certainly know this. Your Minster chiropractor welcomes the reputation as the Minster back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Minster Chiropractic Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful in the least about letting everyone know in Minster.

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 rather 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 options like spinal manipulation are reasonable alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote 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% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center understands this. Minster Chiropractic Center sees that Minster back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Minster chiropractic care and then rely on Minster Chiropractic Center to guide 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 perform many responsibilities: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), give 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 is absolutely the job your Minster chiropractor embraces! What do Minster back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps in a few 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 possibly 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) Minster Chiropractic Center is here to do its part to help.
