Chiropractic Care for Fort Wayne Back Pain Advised by Harvard

December 17, 2017

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Yes, that is a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a prime 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 seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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, points out that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers go to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc concurs that many of the Fort Wayne back pain sufferers coming for Fort Wayne chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Fort Wayne back pain.


That first episode of Fort Wayne back pain care is important as to how the first Fort Wayne back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to block all future Fort Wayne 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 intake and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is important. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages a well-rounded Fort Wayne treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Fort Wayne chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the experienced chiropractor (and your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need another form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate that care and appointment should it be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors cooperate with all types of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter states 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 ordered 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 Fort Wayne chiropractor is your Fort Wayne back pain specialist.
