As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that’s an adaptation of the saying,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, 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.”
discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers should turn to
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Fort Wayne
chiropractor at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological 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 go to a
chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center agrees that many of the Fort Wayne
back pain sufferers seeking Fort Wayne chiropractic
care do so with a first episode of Fort Wayne back pain.
CONTROL OF 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 goal,
certainly, would be to put off
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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient.
Control of diet to reduce inflammatory intake and
boost the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is important. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center designs
a well-rounded Fort Wayne treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Fort Wayne chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to help
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 appropriate to
help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your
Fort Wayne chiropractor at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is!) will direct
your case. If the back pain sufferer should need another
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 says that “a visit to your primary care
physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
