Chiropractic Care for Largo 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 is a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue 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 Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 turn to a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc agrees that many of the Largo back pain sufferers seeking Largo chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Largo back pain.


That first episode of Largo back pain care is influential as to how the first Largo back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, certainly, would be to avoid all future Largo 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 flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and boost the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Hollstrom & Associates Inc designs a well-rounded Largo treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Largo chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Hollstrom & Associates Inc) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the experienced chiropractor (and your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work cooperatively 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.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen 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. Your Largo chiropractor is your Largo back pain specialist.
