As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
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
, 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.
Chiropractic Associates concurs that many of the Preston
back pain sufferers coming for Preston chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Preston back pain.
CONTROL OF 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!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
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.
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.”
