Today, more medical doctors are turning to chiropractic care to treat musculoskeletal pain. Many are becoming aware of the ill effects of opioids, the excessive use of over-the-counter pain medication, and the long-term ineffectiveness of muscle relaxants.
As a result of recent research and studies, Chiropractic care is now recommended as the first line of treatment for neck and lower back pain by the American College of Physicians. Given the numerous benefits of chiropractic care, it is also advised that doctors recommend what the science is proving.
Chiropractic physician Dr. Nicholas Brown, DC, MS, states, “80% of the world’s population will experience low back pain and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide.”
Dr. Brown is the owner of Back2Strength. As the leading authority on spinal rehabilitation in the Eugene area, the clinic has its own state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility, and is the only chiropractic clinic with a spinal rehabilitation center in Eugene, Oregon.
Prior to becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Brown was a 2 sport college athlete and is currently a competitive jiu-jitsu player. Early in his career, he would ignore injuries until they became lingering issues, stating, “this made them more difficult to manage. As I matured and my knowledge of injury management grew, I became proactive with my health and no longer wait for an injury to worsen until having it evaluated.”
Physical health is strongly correlated with spinal health, which is important for posture and alignment. Back, neck, shoulder, and hip pain are all caused by poor posture or sporting injuries. This can have detrimental effects on an individual’s quality of life.
Dr. Brown, who also holds a master’s degree in sports medicine, focuses on treating the root causes of patient’s symptoms in addition to treating their pain, while many other clinics focus solely on the chiropractic adjustment to treat their patients. He has experienced several injuries over his career from playing sports and engaging in other activities, much like many of his patients.
Back2Strength’s main goal is to assist patients in reducing pain while also improving their quality of life and participating in their favorite activities. Patients can access a state-of-the-art spinal rehabilitation facility, massage therapists, and class 4 laser therapy. They can also purchase the highest quality supplements and home care tools to assist their healing at home.
Oftentimes when a patient is dealing with an injury, they may have to visit multiple providers to ensure they have a well-rounded treatment plan. Chiropractic care is known to be the most trusted, effective and cost-efficient way to manage mechanical neck and low back pain.
Dr. Brown’s additional education has made him one of the most trusted providers in the Eugene area and has allowed him to work with both professional and amateur athletes in various sports such as football, track and field, mixed martial arts, cycling, horse eventing, and more. It is due to this reason that he and his team are able to offer much more than chiropractic care.
