Chiropractic Care for Burlington and Hamilton 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 variation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead report 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 seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care 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, points out that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers seek care from a chiropractor for their first attack of back pain. (1) Spinal Care Clinic concurs that many of the Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers seeking Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Burlington and Hamilton back pain.


That first episode of Burlington and Hamilton back pain care is influential as to how the first Burlington and Hamilton back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, certainly, would be to avoid all future Burlington and Hamilton 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 reduce inflammatory intake and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Spinal Care Clinic encourages a well-rounded Burlington and Hamilton treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Spinal Care Clinic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It is truly 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 makes clear, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should require a different 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 cooperate with all types of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter exclaims that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care involved medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation ordered by the medical doctors as well as chiropractic spinal manipulation (Cox Technic) to the patient’s advantage and back pain relief helping him avoid back surgery. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor is your Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist.
