Chiropractic Care for New Roads 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 is a variation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a central 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 should seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic 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, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center concurs that many of the New Roads back pain sufferers coming for New Roads chiropractic care do so with a first episode of New Roads back pain.


That first episode of New Roads back pain care is important as to how the first New Roads back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to avoid all future New Roads back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic. And that’s 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 intake and improve the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. New Roads Chiropractic Center designs a well-rounded New Roads treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your New Roads chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at New Roads Chiropractic Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the experienced chiropractor (and your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another form of care, the chiropractor will arrange 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, you may be interested in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care encompassed 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 advantage and back pain relief assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your New Roads chiropractor is your New Roads back pain specialist.
