Chiropractic Care for Williamson Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Sure, that is a variation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, 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.” talks 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. (1) 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.


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!


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. Chiropractors work agreeably 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.”
