Malverne 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 Malverne attending a meeting.”

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

Your Malverne chiropractor loves this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Malverne chiropractic patients at Malverne Health & Wellness know this for sure. Your Malverne chiropractor enjoys the status as the Malverne back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and engaging! Malverne Health & Wellness understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful in the least about letting everyone know in Malverne.

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 revealed 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 options like spinal manipulation are reasonable options. (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 involve 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% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness understands this. Malverne Health & Wellness grasps that Malverne back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Malverne chiropractic care and then rely on Malverne Health & Wellness to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent future adverse 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is precisely the role your Malverne chiropractor embraces! What do Malverne back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps in a few ways. One is improving the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address 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) Malverne Health & Wellness is here to do its part to help.
