As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.”
that is a reworked version of the motto,
but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the
November 2017 issue of the Harvard
, a main 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 seek
for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Toronto
chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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, points out
that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers seek care from a
chiropractor for their first episode of back pain.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre agrees that many of the Toronto
back pain sufferers seeking Toronto chiropractic
care do so with a first episode of Toronto back pain.
CONTROL OF BACK PAIN
That first episode of Toronto back pain care is important
as to how the first Toronto back pain episode goes as well as how future
back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal,
of course, would be to block
all future Toronto 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 resilient.
Control of diet to reduce inflammatory intake and
improve the intake of joint supporting
nutrients. Control is important. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre designs
a well-rounded Toronto treatment plan that incorporates
these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s
newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Toronto chiropractor
uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre)
and exercise, diet and stretching programs to help
back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!
CHIROPRACTIC MANAGEMENT OF CARE OPTIONS
The chiropractor as the first episode consultant
understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the experienced chiropractor (and your
Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is!) will direct
your case. If the back pain sufferer should require 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.”
