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 Southern New Hampshire attending a meeting.”
Front desk staff: “Oh! My neck is really hurting.”

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 deal with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults considered 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 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 revolve around spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults believed that chiropractic care successfully relieved neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) New Hampshire Spine and Sport gets this.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS
Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many tasks: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), provide 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 facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s just the role your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor enjoys most! What do Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access 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 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) New Hampshire Spine and Sport is here to do its share to help.
