As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that’s an adaptation of the saying,
but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, a prime 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.”
discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to consult
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Pensacola
chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 turn to a
chiropractor for their first episode of back pain.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center agrees that many of the Pensacola
back pain sufferers coming for Pensacola chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Pensacola back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Pensacola back pain care is important
as to how the first Pensacola back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective,
of course, would be to put off
all future Pensacola 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 isn’t of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible.
Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and
boost the consumption of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is important. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center designs
a well-rounded Pensacola treatment plan that includes
these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Pensacola chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen
back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode consultant
understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your
Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is!) will direct
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 types 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.”
