Chiropractic Care for Brooks 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 is a reworked version of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a central 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 ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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, remarks that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their initial episode of back pain. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic agrees that many of the Brooks back pain sufferers seeking Brooks chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Brooks back pain.
 

CONTROL OF BACK PAIN

That first episode of Brooks back pain care is influential as to how the first Brooks back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to avoid all future Brooks back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic. And that’s 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 resilient. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Soft Health and Healing Clinic designs a well-rounded Brooks treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Brooks chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Soft Health and Healing Clinic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!

CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS

The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors cooperate 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.”
