As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is an adaptation of the saying,
but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the
November 2017 edition of the Harvard
, 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.”
about back pain and whom back pain sufferers should seek
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Ashburn
chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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, remarks
that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers seek care from a
chiropractor for their first attack of back pain.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn concurs that many of the Ashburn
back pain sufferers coming for Ashburn chiropractic
care do so with a first attack of Ashburn back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Ashburn back pain care is important
as to how the first Ashburn back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective,
of course, would be to avert
all future Ashburn 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 isn’t of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient.
Control of diet to decrease inflammatory intake and
increase the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is important. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn presents
a well-rounded Ashburn treatment plan that includes
these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Ashburn chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate
back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode specialist
understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your
Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is!) will direct
your case. If the back pain sufferer should need 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 work together
with all these 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.”
