Watertown Chiropractic Healthy News – December 2017

Watertown Wellness Center offers chiropractic care like Harvard recommends.

HARVARD RECOMMENDS CHIROPRACTIC

Watertown Wellness Center is eager to share this update: The Harvard Health Letter endorses chiropractic use for back pain due to disc herniation, sprain and strain. Watertown Wellness Center knows its Watertown chiropractic services help these conditions all the time! It’s great to see this recommendation in print.

Dr. Robert Shmerling a rheumatologist at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center says that “In most cases, you won’t need a specialist” when low back pain arises. Common reasons are a sprain (ligament issue), strain (muscle/tendon issue), and herniated (slipped) disc. Watertown Wellness Center is well-trained to care for these spine pain conditions.

Dr. Matthew Kowalski who is a chiropractor with the Osher Clinical Center for Integrative Medicine at Harvard’s Brigham and Women's Hospital points out that a primary care physician or chiropractor can evaluate your problem and manage its care. 35% to 42% of patients with their first episode of back pain visit a chiropractor. Chiropractors employ hands-on spinal manipulation, exercise, and diet and refer to specialists as required for integrative, cooperative care. Your Watertown chiropractic is very knowledgeable in coordinating care like this with Watertown medical providers.

Bottomline: Harvard’s Health Letter advises that “for back sprains, strains, and herniated discs, a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.” (1) Watertown Wellness Center is the Watertown back pain specialist, experienced and successful in its care of these conditions with the Cox Technic System of Spinal Care Management.
