As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that’s a variation of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the
November 2017 edition of the Harvard
, 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 should 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 initial attack of back pain.
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.
CONTROL OF 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!
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 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.
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.”
