Pflugerville 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 Pflugerville attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My neck is really hurting.”

Your Pflugerville chiropractor loves this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Pflugerville chiropractic patients at Pflugerville Wellness Center certainly know this. Your Pflugerville chiropractor enjoys the reputation as the Pflugerville back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Pflugerville Wellness Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reticent at all about telling everyone in Pflugerville.

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 found 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 methods like spinal manipulation are practical 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 successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center gets this. Pflugerville Wellness Center grasps that Pflugerville back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Pflugerville chiropractic care and then trust Pflugerville Wellness Center to point 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 issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many responsibilities: 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 aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s precisely the job your Pflugerville chiropractor enjoys most! What do Pflugerville back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It helps in several ways. One is improving 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 possibly reining in 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center is here to do its share to help.
