Auburn 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 Auburn attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My neck is killing me!”

Your Auburn chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Auburn chiropractic patients at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. know this for sure. Your Auburn chiropractor accepts the reputation as the Auburn back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not shy in the least about telling everyone in Auburn.

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 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug methods like spinal manipulation are practical alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded 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 revolve around spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults believed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. gets this. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. grasps that Auburn back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Auburn chiropractic care and then trust Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to avert future adverse 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 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 coordinate all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s precisely the job your Auburn chiropractor enjoys most! What do Auburn back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access helps in a few ways. One is increasing 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 possibly reining in 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is here to do its part to help.
