Chiropractic Care for Tarrytown Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Ok, that is a variation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a main 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers should turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Tarrytown chiropractor at Tarrytown 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, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic concurs that many of the Tarrytown back pain sufferers coming for Tarrytown chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Tarrytown back pain.


That first episode of Tarrytown back pain care is critical as to how the first Tarrytown back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to avoid all future Tarrytown 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 flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and improve the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is important. Tarrytown Chiropractic designs a well-rounded Tarrytown treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Tarrytown chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Tarrytown Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce 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 explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Tarrytown chiropractor at Tarrytown Chiropractic is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will organize that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work agreeably with all types 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.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care involved medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation ordered by the medical doctors as well as chiropractic spinal manipulation (Cox Technic) to the patient’s benefit and back pain relief helping him avoid back surgery. Your Tarrytown chiropractor is your Tarrytown back pain specialist.
