Chiropractic Care for West Palm Beach 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’s a variation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a lead 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.” discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses 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, points out that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers seek care from a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Moses Chiropractic agrees that many of the West Palm Beach back pain sufferers seeking West Palm Beach chiropractic care do so with a first episode of West Palm Beach back pain.


That first episode of West Palm Beach back pain care is critical as to how the first West Palm Beach back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, certainly, would be to prevent all future West Palm Beach 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 resilient. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Moses Chiropractic designs a well-rounded West Palm Beach treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your West Palm Beach chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Moses Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the well-trained chiropractor (and your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses Chiropractic is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another 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 agreeably with all these of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter says 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 helping him avoid back surgery. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is your West Palm Beach back pain specialist.
