As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a variation of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, 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.”
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 episode of back pain.
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.
CONTROL OF 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!
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 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.
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.”
