Logan valedictorian champions chiropractic through education

Five years ago, Elisabeth Pang, DC, BSc, BScKin, MSc, (2012) was graduating as valedictorian of her class with her Doctor of Chiropractic and master’s degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation.

Returning to her Canadian roots, Dr. Pang now splits her time between Edmonton and Spruce Grove where she practices chiropractic, educates patients and serves as an advocate for her profession in the community. 

“The biggest eye opener for me after graduating was simply the lack of exposure people have about chiropractic,” she said. “I often find myself saying, ‘No, we don’t just treat low back pain. There are numerous ailments we can help with.’ Communication is key to a patient’s education.”

The daily interaction with patients as well as helping them see the benefits of chiropractic is something Dr. Pang is passionate about. She is also motivated by her patients and their successes, which have been instrumental in helping spread the word about chiropractic to others.  

When she’s not practicing, Dr. Pang advances the profession through chiropractic education, whether it’s at community lectures, hosting lunch and learn meetings or working with local teens and running groups. She is also part of the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors, which actively supports Alberta chiropractors through promotion and marketing initiatives.

“Additionally, I started teaching courses in the medical office administrator program at NorQuest College, a community college in Edmonton,” she said. “It’s really important for others to understand alternative health care options, and bringing a new perspective to that conversation has been invaluable.”

Dr. Pang said among her favorite things about earning her education at Logan was the opportunity to pursue whatever path she wanted to follow. That preparation, she said, ignited her passion which she hopes will continue as she both practices and educates around Central Alberta. “In the meantime, exposure to great practitioners and being a part of well-respected clinics in the community is continuing to make me a proud and successful chiropractor."

The Canadian Chiropractic Association is striving to make chiropractors an integral part of every Canadian healthcare team by 2023. Logan commends these efforts and is currently offering a $10,000 scholarship to incoming Canadian students.

Logan highlights non-drug pain treatments and wellness during National Chiropractic Health Month

In the wake of the national opiate abuse crisis, October marks National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) and provides an important opportunity to educate pain sufferers about the benefits of chiropractic care and its evidence-informed, patient-centered and drug-free approach to wellness.

This year's theme, "Back to Basics," emphasizes simple yet significant strategies for maintaining spinal health throughout a lifetime. Back pain is a major health issue: Up to 80 percent of people will suffer from the ailment during their lives, and it is one of the most common reasons patients begin taking medications.

NCHM's message couldn't be more important – according to the CDC, more than 90 Americans die each day from opioid abuse and overuse, and the number of deaths from overdoses has quadrupled since 1999. In 2014, more than 13,000 people died from overdoses, and another 2 million abused or were dependent on opioids.

"Chiropractors are uniquely poised to work side-by-side with medical providers to assist patients with chronic pain and rehabilitation after injury," said Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, president of Logan University. "The increasing interest in holistic wellness, improved nutrition and non-drug based solutions to pain all coalesce now, creating the perfect scenario for a renaissance in chiropractic." Further proof of the increasing demand for chiropractic care, Logan recently enrolled its largest class of doctor of chiropractic candidates in a decade.

One Logan researcher, Norman Kettner, DC, DACBR, FICC, is widely considered an expert in brain mapping and pain. Dr. Kettner's most recent research published in the journal Brain showed the positive impact acupuncture has on people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Additional evidence supports drug-free approaches to pain treatment, such as a 2017 study in the Journal of American Medical Association which found that spinal manipulation therapy improves pain among patients with acute low back pain.

About National Chiropractic Health Month
