Chiropractic Care for Nashua Back Pain Advised by Harvard

December 17, 2017

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Sure, that’s an adaptation of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does catch 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.” discusses back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to turn to for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic 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) Moriarty Chiropractic concurs that many of the Nashua back pain sufferers coming for Nashua chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Nashua back pain.


That first episode of Nashua back pain care is influential as to how the first Nashua back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, of course, would be to block all future Nashua 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 is not of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. Moriarty Chiropractic designs a well-rounded Nashua treatment plan that incorporates these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Nashua chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Moriarty Chiropractic) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen 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 clarifies, the experienced chiropractor (and your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should need 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 cooperate 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.”


Reading this information from Harvard, listen in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care involved medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation ordered 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 Nashua chiropractor is your Nashua back pain specialist.
