Chiropractic Care for Preston Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Yes, that is a reworked version of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead 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.” discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates 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 go to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Chiropractic Associates agrees that many of the Preston back pain sufferers coming for Preston chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Preston back pain.


That first episode of Preston back pain care is influential as to how the first Preston back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to avert all future Preston 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 isn’t of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Chiropractic Associates presents a well-rounded Preston treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Preston chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Chiropractic Associates) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the experienced chiropractor (and your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should it 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 exclaims that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
