San Jose 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 San Jose attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My back is killing me!”

Your San Jose chiropractor enjoys this and could converse about back pain and neck pain forever! San Jose chiropractic patients at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions know this for sure. Your San Jose chiropractor embraces the reputation as the San Jose back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reticent at all about letting everyone know in San Jose.

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 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 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 emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are rational alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote 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 revolve around spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions understands this. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions sees that San Jose back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the San Jose chiropractic care and then count on McMurray Chiropractic Solutions to guide 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 educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on 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 organize all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s truly the job your San Jose chiropractor embraces! What do San Jose back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This 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 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is here to do its share to help.
