Ottawa 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 Ottawa attending a meeting.”

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

Your Ottawa chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain forever! Ottawa chiropractic patients at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider know this for sure. Your Ottawa chiropractor accepts the status as the Ottawa back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so stimulating and inviting! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reluctant at all about telling everyone in Ottawa.

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 revealed 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 considered physical therapy and chiropractic care as very 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 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 wrote that chiropractic is seen by society as a profession of health care providers who are specialists 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 was successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% believed chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider gets this. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows that Ottawa back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Ottawa chiropractic care and then rely on The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to avert future adverse health and/or spinal pain issues.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play 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 coordinate all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s just the job your Ottawa chiropractor embraces! What do Ottawa back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire 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 address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is reducing the cost of care. (6) Four is potentially curbing 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is here to do its share to help.
