Chiropractic Care for Groton Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Yes, that is 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 central 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 consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Groton chiropractor at Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 seek care from a chiropractor for their first attack of back pain. (1) Hutter Chiropractic Office concurs that many of the Groton back pain sufferers seeking Groton chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Groton back pain.
 

CONTROL OF BACK PAIN

That first episode of Groton back pain care is critical as to how the first Groton back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to put off all future Groton 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 decrease inflammatory intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Hutter Chiropractic Office designs a well-rounded Groton treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Groton chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Hutter Chiropractic Office) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!

CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS

The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the experienced chiropractor (and your Groton chiropractor at Hutter Chiropractic Office is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors collaborate with all these 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.”
