Fort Wayne Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

November 28, 2017

When I check into a hotel for a conference, the conversation often goes like this:

Front desk staff: “So what are you here for?”

Me: “I’m a chiropractor from Fort Wayne attending a meeting.”

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

Your Fort Wayne chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain forever! Fort Wayne chiropractic patients at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc know this for sure. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor enjoys the status as the Fort Wayne back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not reluctant at all about telling everyone in Fort Wayne.


You’ve 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 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 emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are rational alternatives. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is seen 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 was valuable in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gets this. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows that Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients find relief with the Fort Wayne chiropractic care and then rely on Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to lead them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to avert future unpleasant health and/or spinal pain issues.


Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners perform 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 direct all facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is an extensive job with plenty of responsibility! It is truly the job your Fort Wayne chiropractor enjoys most! What do Fort Wayne back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies provided by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This benefits in several ways. One is improving the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is lessening the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to do its share to help.
