Chiropractic Care for Two Rivers 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 a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a main article titled “Where to turn for low back pain relief. In most cases, a primary care doctor or chiropractor can help you resolve the problem.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Two Rivers chiropractor at Lakeshore 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, points out that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Lakeshore Chiropractic agrees that many of the Two Rivers back pain sufferers seeking Two Rivers chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Two Rivers back pain.


That first episode of Two Rivers back pain care is critical as to how the first Two Rivers back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to avert all future Two Rivers 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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Lakeshore Chiropractic encourages a well-rounded Two Rivers treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Two Rivers chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Lakeshore Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to relieve back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Two Rivers chiropractor at Lakeshore Chiropractic is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another form of care, the chiropractor will arrange that care and appointment should it be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work together 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.”


With that recommendation, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care involved medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation arranged by the medical doctors as well as chiropractic spinal manipulation (Cox Technic) to the patient’s advantage and back pain relief assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your Two Rivers chiropractor is your Two Rivers back pain specialist.
