As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a reworked version of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, a lead 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.”
discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to seek
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Carrolltown
chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 seek care from a
chiropractor for their initial episode of back pain.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation agrees that many of the Carrolltown
back pain sufferers coming for Carrolltown chiropractic
care do so with a first episode of Carrolltown back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Carrolltown back pain care is important
as to how the first Carrolltown back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective,
of course, would be to avoid
all future Carrolltown 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 flexible.
Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and
increase the consumption of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is fundamental. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages
a well-rounded Carrolltown treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Carrolltown chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen
back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode specialist
understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski clarifies, the experienced chiropractor (and your
Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is!) will manage
your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another
form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate
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 exclaims that “a visit to your primary care
physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
