Toronto 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 Toronto attending a meeting.”

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

Your Toronto chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Toronto chiropractic patients at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre certainly know this. Your Toronto chiropractor enjoys the reputation as the Toronto back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and engaging! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not shy in the least about letting everyone know in Toronto.

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 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 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 stressed 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 expressed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre gets this. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees that Toronto back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Toronto chiropractic care and then count on Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre to point 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 conditions.

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 direct all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the role your Toronto chiropractor embraces! What do Toronto back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors first. Such access helps 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 reducing the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to do its part to help.
