Chiropractic Care for New York City 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’s a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your New York City chiropractor at Innate Wisdom 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 first attack of back pain. (1) Innate Wisdom agrees that many of the New York City back pain sufferers seeking New York City chiropractic care do so with a first episode of New York City back pain.


That first episode of New York City back pain care is influential as to how the first New York City back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain incidents may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to put off all future New York City 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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Innate Wisdom presents a well-rounded New York City treatment plan that embraces these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your New York City chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Innate Wisdom) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It is truly 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 clarifies, the experienced chiropractor (and your New York City chiropractor at Innate Wisdom is!) will direct 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 cooperate with all types 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 involved 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 New York City chiropractor is your New York City back pain specialist.
