As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a reworked version of the saying,
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.”
presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to turn to
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Millville
chiropractor at Wilson Family 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 initial attack of back pain.
Wilson Family Chiropractic agrees that many of the Millville
back pain sufferers coming for Millville chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Millville back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Millville back pain care is influential
as to how the first Millville back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal,
certainly, would be to block
all future Millville 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 consumption and
improve the consumption of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is important. Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages
a well-rounded Millville treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Millville chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Wilson Family 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 explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your
Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic is!) will oversee
your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different
form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate
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.”
