West Des Moines 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 West Des Moines attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My neck is really hurting.”

Your West Des Moines chiropractor loves this and could converse about back pain and neck pain all day long!

Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t bashful in the least about telling everyone in West Des Moines.

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 found 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 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 reasonable options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa gets this. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees that West Des Moines back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the West Des Moines chiropractic care and then trust Executive Chiropractic of Iowa to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent future unpleasant health and/or spinal pain issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many tasks: 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the job your West Des Moines chiropractor enjoys most! What do West Des Moines 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 increasing 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 potentially curbing the opioid epidemic. The American College of Physicians’ recommendations for back pain sufferers specifically state that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is here to do its part to help.
