As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a variation of the saying,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, a main 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.”
about back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to seek
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Williamson
chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic 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 go to a
chiropractor for their initial episode of back pain.
Apple Country Chiropractic agrees that many of the Williamson
back pain sufferers seeking Williamson chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Williamson back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Williamson back pain care is influential
as to how the first Williamson back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal,
of course, would be to block
all future Williamson 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 resilient.
Control of diet to reduce inflammatory intake and
increase the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is key. Apple Country Chiropractic designs
a well-rounded Williamson treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Williamson chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Apple Country Chiropractic)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to help
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 clarifies, the experienced chiropractor (and your
Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic is!) will oversee
your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another
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 these of healthcare
specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health
newsletter says that “a visit to your primary care
physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
