Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? I have this pain down my leg…”

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation certainly know this. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor enjoys the status as the Baton Rouge back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t bashful in the least about telling everyone in Baton Rouge.

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 cope with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults considered physical therapy and chiropractic care as quite 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 methods like spinal manipulation are practical options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded 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 was effective in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation gets this. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees that Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Baton Rouge chiropractic care and then rely on Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to guide 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.), 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 aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It is truly the role your Baton Rouge chiropractor enjoys most! What do Baton Rouge back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access benefits 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 lessening the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is here to do its share to help.
