St. Francisville 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 St. Francisville attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Oh! My spouse has the worst back pain and pain down the leg!”

Your St. Francisville chiropractor enjoys this and could talk back pain and neck pain forever! St. Francisville chiropractic patients at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville certainly know this.

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reticent in the least about telling everyone in St. Francisville.


You’ve 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 prefer to 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 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 believed that chiropractic care was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands this. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows that St. Francisville back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the St. Francisville chiropractic care and then rely on Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to lead 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 conditions.


Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 direct all phases of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It’s an extensive job with lots of responsibility! It’s just the job your St. Francisville chiropractor embraces! What do St. Francisville back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It helps 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 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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here to do its share to help.
