Lynchburg 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 Lynchburg attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My neck is really hurting.”

Your Lynchburg chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! Lynchburg chiropractic patients at Palmer Chiropractic Center know this for sure. Your Lynchburg chiropractor welcomes the status as the Lynchburg back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Palmer Chiropractic Center knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not shy at all about telling everyone in Lynchburg.

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 deal 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are practical 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 expressed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center understands this. Palmer Chiropractic Center grasps that Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Lynchburg chiropractic care and then rely on Palmer Chiropractic Center to point them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to avert future adverse health and/or spinal pain conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 direct all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It is absolutely the role your Lynchburg chiropractor enjoys most! What do Lynchburg back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It 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 possibly 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center is here to do its share to help.
