Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge attending a meeting.”

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

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at Spine & Sports Rehab Center certainly know this. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor accepts the status as the Baton Rouge back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful at all about telling everyone in Baton Rouge .

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 believed physical therapy and chiropractic care as very 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 emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug approaches like spinal manipulation are practical alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote 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 expressed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands this. Spine & Sports Rehab Center grasps that Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Baton Rouge chiropractic care and then count on Spine & Sports Rehab Center to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent 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.), 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 aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It is just the job your Baton Rouge chiropractor embraces! What do Baton Rouge back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It 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 potentially 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is here to do its part to help.
