Chiropractic Care for Buffalo, NY 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 reworked version of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, a prime 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.” presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at Disc Centers Of America 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 episode of back pain. (1) Disc Centers Of America concurs that many of the Buffalo, NY back pain sufferers coming for Buffalo, NY chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Buffalo, NY back pain.


That first episode of Buffalo, NY back pain care is influential as to how the first Buffalo, NY back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to avert all future Buffalo, NY 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 intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is important. Disc Centers Of America designs a well-rounded Buffalo, NY treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Buffalo, NY chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Disc Centers Of America) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain.

The chiropractor as the first episode specialist understands back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at Disc Centers Of America is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should require a different form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate 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 says that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
