Easley Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

November 28, 2017

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 Easley attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My neck is really hurting.”

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


You’ve 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 prefer to use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to deal 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 stressed how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options 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% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Young Chiropractic gets this. Young Chiropractic grasps that Easley back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Easley chiropractic care and then rely on Young Chiropractic to guide 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 issues.


Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play many responsibilities: 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 aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s absolutely the role your Easley chiropractor embraces! What do Easley back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. Such access helps in a few 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 potentially reining in 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) Young Chiropractic is here to do its share to help.
