Chiropractic Care for Malverne Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Ok, that is 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 central 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 ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness 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 turn to a chiropractor for their initial attack of back pain. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness agrees that many of the Malverne back pain sufferers seeking Malverne chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Malverne back pain.


That first episode of Malverne back pain care is critical as to how the first Malverne back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to avert all future Malverne 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 isn’t of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory consumption and increase the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is important. Malverne Health & Wellness presents a well-rounded Malverne treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Malverne chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Malverne Health & Wellness) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to relieve back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should require 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 together with all these of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter exclaims that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
