Carrolltown Chiropractic Healthy News December 2017

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers chiropractic care like Harvard recommends.


Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is eager to share this news: The Harvard Health Letter recommends chiropractic use for back pain due to disc herniation, sprain and strain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows its Carrolltown chiropractic services help these conditions all the time! It is wonderful to see this recommendation in print.

Dr. Robert Shmerling who is a rheumatologist at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center says that “In most cases, you won’t need a specialist” when low back pain strikes. Common causes are a sprain (ligament issue), strain (muscle/tendon issue), and herniated (slipped) disc. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is well-trained to care for these spine pain conditions.

Dr. Matthew Kowalski who is a chiropractor with the Osher Clinical Center for Integrative Medicine at Harvard’s Brigham and Women's Hospital explains that a primary care physician or chiropractor can evaluate your problem and guide its care. 35% to 42% of patients who experience back pain for the first time visit a chiropractor. Chiropractors employ hands-on spinal manipulation, exercise, and diet and refer to specialists when required for integrative, cooperative care. Your Carrolltown chiropractic is quite knowledgeable in coordinating care like this with Carrolltown medical providers.

Bottomline: Harvard’s Health Letter recommends that “for back sprains, strains, and herniated discs, a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.” (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is the Carrolltown back pain specialist, confident in its care of these conditions with the Cox Technic System of Spinal Care Management.
