As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a reworked version of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 edition 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.”
presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Oxford
chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 first episode of back pain.
Satterwhite Chiropractic concurs that many of the Oxford
back pain sufferers coming for Oxford chiropractic
care do so with a first episode of Oxford back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Oxford back pain care is critical
as to how the first Oxford back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective,
certainly, would be to avert
all future Oxford 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 resilient.
Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and
improve the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is fundamental. Satterwhite Chiropractic encourages
a well-rounded Oxford treatment plan that comprises
these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Oxford chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Satterwhite Chiropractic)
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
understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski clarifies, the experienced chiropractor (and your
Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic is!) will direct
your case. If the back pain sufferer should require a different
form of care, the chiropractor will arrange
that care and appointment should that 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 exclaims that “a visit to your primary care
physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
