Chiropractic Care for Mandeville 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’s a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead 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.” presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Mandeville chiropractor at Mandeville 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 seek care from a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Mandeville Chiropractic agrees that many of the Mandeville back pain sufferers seeking Mandeville chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Mandeville back pain.


That first episode of Mandeville back pain care is influential as to how the first Mandeville back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to avert all future Mandeville 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 decrease inflammatory intake and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Mandeville Chiropractic designs a well-rounded Mandeville treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Mandeville chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Mandeville Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist knows back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Mandeville chiropractor at Mandeville Chiropractic is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should it be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work together 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.”


With that recommendation, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care included 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 Mandeville chiropractor is your Mandeville back pain specialist.
