Chiropractic Care for Pflugerville 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 an adaptation of the motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 issue of the Harvard Health Letter, 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers should seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center 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, remarks that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers go to a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center concurs that many of the Pflugerville back pain sufferers coming for Pflugerville chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Pflugerville back pain.


That first episode of Pflugerville back pain care is important as to how the first Pflugerville back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to put off all future Pflugerville 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 decrease inflammatory intake and improve the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages a well-rounded Pflugerville treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Pflugerville chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Pflugerville Wellness Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It’s a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant recognizes back pain and the options that are helpful. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski explains, the experienced chiropractor (and your Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center is!) will oversee your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will arrange 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.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care included 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 assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your Pflugerville chiropractor is your Pflugerville back pain specialist.
