As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
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
, 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.
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.
CONTROL OF 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!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode consultant
recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the experienced 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.
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.”
