Paramus 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 Paramus attending a meeting.”

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

Your Paramus chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Paramus chiropractic patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center certainly know this. Your Paramus chiropractor accepts the reputation as the Paramus back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t shy in the least about telling everyone in Paramus.

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 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 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 reasonable alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote 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 involve spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center gets this. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows that Paramus back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Paramus chiropractic care and then trust Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center to point 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 issues.

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.), provide 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 phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is absolutely the job your Paramus chiropractor embraces! What do Paramus back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It benefits 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 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is here to do its share to help.
