As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is an adaptation of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the
November 2017 edition of the Harvard
, a central 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.”
presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers should seek
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Sandy Springs
chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic 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, notes
that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a
chiropractor for their first episode of back pain.
Cross Chiropractic Center concurs that many of the Sandy Springs
back pain sufferers seeking Sandy Springs chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Sandy Springs back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Sandy Springs back pain care is important
as to how the first Sandy Springs 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 Sandy Springs back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic.
And that is 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 intake and
improve the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is key. Cross Chiropractic Center presents
a well-rounded Sandy Springs treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Sandy Springs chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Cross Chiropractic Center)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to help
back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode specialist
recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski clarifies, the well-trained chiropractor (and your
Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center is!) will manage
your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another
form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate
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.”
