Chiropractic Care for Pensacola Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Sure, that’s an adaptation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, 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. (1) 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.


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!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, 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. Chiropractors collaborate 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.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care involved medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation arranged 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 Pensacola chiropractor is your Pensacola back pain specialist.
