Chiropractic Care for Sandy Springs Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Ok, that is an adaptation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, 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 ought to 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 attack of back pain. (1) 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.


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!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski clarifies, the experienced 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. 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.”
