Chiropractic Care for Ottawa 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 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider 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 initial attack of back pain. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider concurs that many of the Ottawa back pain sufferers coming for Ottawa chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Ottawa back pain.
 

CONTROL OF BACK PAIN

That first episode of Ottawa back pain care is critical as to how the first Ottawa back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, certainly, would be to avert all future Ottawa 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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider presents a well-rounded Ottawa treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Ottawa chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It’s 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 makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should it be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work agreeably 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.”
