Oxford 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 Oxford attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My spouse has the worst back pain and pain down the leg!”

Your Oxford chiropractor welcomes this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Oxford chiropractic patients at Satterwhite Chiropractic know this for sure. Your Oxford chiropractor welcomes the reputation as the Oxford back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Satterwhite Chiropractic knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t shy at all about telling everyone in Oxford.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You have heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup teamed up with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that revealed 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 thought 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 methods like spinal manipulation are practical options. (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 involve 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic gets this. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees that Oxford back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Oxford chiropractic care and then rely on Satterwhite Chiropractic to point 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 conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the role your Oxford chiropractor embraces! What do Oxford back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access benefits in a few ways. One is improving 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 state that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Satterwhite Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
