Chiropractic Care for Montreal 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 motto, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition 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.” talks about back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers go to a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic agrees that many of the Montreal back pain sufferers seeking Montreal chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Montreal back pain.


That first episode of Montreal back pain care is critical as to how the first Montreal back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, certainly, would be to block all future Montreal 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 reduce inflammatory intake and increase the intake of joint supporting nutrients. Control is important. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages a well-rounded Montreal treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain subsides as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Montreal chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic) 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 appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the experienced chiropractor (and your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should require a different form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate that care and appointment should that 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.”


With that recommendation, you may be interested 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 assisting his effort to avoid back surgery. Your Montreal chiropractor is your Montreal back pain specialist.
