Eugene 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 Eugene attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My mother has the worst back pain and pain down the leg!”

Your Eugene chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Eugene chiropractic patients at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic certainly know this. Your Eugene chiropractor welcomes the status as the Eugene back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not shy at all about telling everyone in Eugene.

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 showed 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 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 emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are reasonable 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 believed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands this. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic grasps that Eugene back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Eugene chiropractic care and then trust Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s truly the role your Eugene chiropractor enjoys most! What do Eugene back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This helps in several 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is here to do its share to help.
