Chiropractic Care for Plymouth 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’s an adaptation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a central 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 attack of back pain. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology concurs that many of the Plymouth back pain sufferers seeking Plymouth chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Plymouth back pain.


That first episode of Plymouth back pain care is critical as to how the first Plymouth back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, certainly, would be to prevent all future Plymouth 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 intake and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages a well-rounded Plymouth treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Plymouth chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist knows back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the experienced chiropractor (and your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate 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, you may be interested in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care encompassed medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation ordered by the medical doctors as well as chiropractic spinal manipulation (Cox Technic) to the patient’s advantage and back pain relief helping him avoid back surgery. Your Plymouth chiropractor is your Plymouth back pain specialist.
