Chiropractic Care for Manchester Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Ok, that’s a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a main article titled “Where to turn for low back pain relief. In most cases, a primary care doctor or chiropractor can help you resolve the problem.” presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers should turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Manchester chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries or primary care doctor. Dr. Matthew Kowalski, a chiropractor on staff at Harvard’s Osher Clinical Center for Integrative Medicine at the Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers seek care from a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries concurs that many of the Manchester back pain sufferers seeking Manchester chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Manchester back pain.


That first episode of Manchester back pain care is influential as to how the first Manchester back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, certainly, would be to put off all future Manchester back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic. And that is ok, too. There is control. Control of body motions like bending, lifting and twisting. Control of body muscle like exercising what there is (or is not of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory intake and improve the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries designs a well-rounded Manchester treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Manchester chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Manchester chiropractor at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another form of care, the chiropractor will organize that care and appointment should it be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work cooperatively with all these of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter states that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
