Sandy Springs 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 Sandy Springs attending a meeting.”

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

Your Sandy Springs chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long! Sandy Springs chiropractic patients at Cross Chiropractic Center certainly know this. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor embraces the status as the Sandy Springs back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Cross Chiropractic Center understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reluctant at all about letting everyone know in Sandy Springs.

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 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 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug methods like spinal manipulation are rational 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 valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center gets this. Cross Chiropractic Center grasps that Sandy Springs back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Sandy Springs chiropractic care and then trust Cross Chiropractic Center to point 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 conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play 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 facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is precisely the role your Sandy Springs chiropractor enjoys most! What do Sandy Springs back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied 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 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) Cross Chiropractic Center is here to do its share to help.
