Pensacola 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 Pensacola attending a meeting.”

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

Your Pensacola chiropractor enjoys this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Pensacola chiropractic patients at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center know this for sure. Your Pensacola chiropractor embraces the status as the Pensacola back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t shy in the least about telling everyone in Pensacola.

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 found 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 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 practical options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded that chiropractic is viewed 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 effective in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center gets this. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees that Pensacola back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Pensacola chiropractic care and then count on Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many tasks: 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 coordinate all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s absolutely the job your Pensacola chiropractor embraces! What do Pensacola back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access benefits in several ways. One is improving 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 curbing 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is here to do its share to help.
