Chiropractic Care for Plainville Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Yes, that is a variation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a prime 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.” discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic 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 episode of back pain. (1) Layden Chiropractic concurs that many of the Plainville back pain sufferers coming for Plainville chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Plainville back pain.


That first episode of Plainville back pain care is influential as to how the first Plainville back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to avert all future Plainville 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 reduce inflammatory intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Layden Chiropractic presents a well-rounded Plainville treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Plainville chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Layden Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to help back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant recognizes back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need another form of care, the chiropractor will arrange that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors cooperate with all types 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, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care encompassed 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 assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your Plainville chiropractor is your Plainville back pain specialist.
