As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
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
, 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.
Mandeville Chiropractic agrees that many of the Mandeville
back pain sufferers seeking Mandeville chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Mandeville back pain.
CONTROL OF 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 subsides 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!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
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.
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.”
