Chiropractic Care for Paramus 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 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.” discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers should consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation 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 seek care from a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center agrees that many of the Paramus back pain sufferers coming for Paramus chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Paramus back pain.


That first episode of Paramus back pain care is critical as to how the first Paramus back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to avoid all future Paramus 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 flexible. Control of diet to reduce inflammatory intake and improve the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center presents a well-rounded Paramus treatment plan that includes these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Paramus chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to alleviate back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant knows back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski describes, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is!) will manage your case. If the back pain sufferer should need a different form of care, the chiropractor will organize that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors cooperate 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 encompassed 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 Paramus chiropractor is your Paramus back pain specialist.
