As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is an adaptation of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, 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.
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 require 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.
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.”
