Plymouth 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 Plymouth attending a meeting.”

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

Your Plymouth chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! Plymouth chiropractic patients at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology know this for sure. Your Plymouth chiropractor welcomes the status as the Plymouth back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t bashful at all about letting everyone know in Plymouth.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup partnered with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that revealed that 78% of American adults would rather 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 quite 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 options 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 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 was effective in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology understands this. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows that Plymouth back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Plymouth chiropractic care and then rely on Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance 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 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 organize all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is absolutely the job your Plymouth chiropractor embraces! What do Plymouth back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. This helps in several ways. One is increasing 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 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is here to do its part to help.
