Plainville 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 Plainville attending a meeting.”

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

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

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve 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 cope 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 emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug approaches like spinal manipulation are rational alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is viewed 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 believed that chiropractic care was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Layden Chiropractic gets this. Layden Chiropractic grasps that Plainville back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Plainville chiropractic care and then trust Layden Chiropractic to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to avert future unpleasant health and/or spinal pain conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play many tasks: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), present 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 coordinate all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s truly the job your Plainville chiropractor enjoys most! What do Plainville back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This benefits 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 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) Layden Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
