Chiropractic Care for Minster 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 motto, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers should turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Minster chiropractor at Minster 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, remarks that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center agrees that many of the Minster back pain sufferers seeking Minster chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Minster back pain.


That first episode of Minster back pain care is influential as to how the first Minster back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, certainly, would be to block all future Minster 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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory intake and boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Minster Chiropractic Center encourages a well-rounded Minster treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Minster chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Minster Chiropractic Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist understands back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will organize that care and appointment should that 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, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care encompassed 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 advantage and back pain relief assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your Minster chiropractor is your Minster back pain specialist.
