Chiropractic Care for Severna Park 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 saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead 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 ought to consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care 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, points out that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers go to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Back And Neck Care Center concurs that many of the Severna Park back pain sufferers seeking Severna Park chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Severna Park back pain.


That first episode of Severna Park back pain care is important as to how the first Severna Park back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to put off all future Severna Park 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 reduce inflammatory consumption and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Back And Neck Care Center designs a well-rounded Severna Park treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Severna Park chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Back And Neck Care Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should require 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. Chiropractors cooperate 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.”
