As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
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
, 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.
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.
CONTROL OF 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!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
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.
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.”
