Chiropractic Care for Manahawkin Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Sure, that’s an adaptation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does catch 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 should turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin 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. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center concurs that many of the Manahawkin back pain sufferers coming for Manahawkin chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Manahawkin back pain.


That first episode of Manahawkin back pain care is influential as to how the first Manahawkin back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to block all future Manahawkin 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 boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents a well-rounded Manahawkin treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Manahawkin chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist recognizes back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will organize that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work together with all types of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter exclaims 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 included 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 helping him avoid back surgery.
