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 Nashua attending a meeting.”
Front desk staff: “Oh! My back is killing me!”
Your Nashua chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! Nashua chiropractic patients at Moriarty Chiropractic know this for sure. Your Nashua chiropractor welcomes the status as the Nashua back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! Moriarty 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 Nashua.
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 showed 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 thought 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug approaches like spinal manipulation are rational options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is seen 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 revolve around 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) Moriarty Chiropractic gets this. Moriarty Chiropractic knows that Nashua back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Nashua chiropractic care and then trust Moriarty Chiropractic to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to prevent 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.), 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 is an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s precisely the job your Nashua chiropractor embraces! What do Nashua back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps in several ways. One is improving the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is lessening 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) Moriarty Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
