Ashburn 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 Ashburn attending a meeting.”

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

Your Ashburn chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Ashburn chiropractic patients at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn certainly know this. Your Ashburn chiropractor accepts the status as the Ashburn back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reluctant at all about telling everyone in Ashburn.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup teamed up 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 very 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 alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded that chiropractic is viewed by society as a profession of health care providers who are experts 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% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn understands this. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees that Ashburn back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Ashburn chiropractic care and then trust Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent 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 responsibilities: 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 coordinate all facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is precisely the job your Ashburn chiropractor enjoys most! What do Ashburn back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It benefits in several ways. One is increasing 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 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is here to do its share to help.
