Dr. Robert Shmerling who is 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 strikes. Common causes are a sprain (ligament issue), strain (muscle/tendon issue), and
herniated (slipped) disc. Johnson Chiropractic 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 explains that a primary care
physician or chiropractor can evaluate your problem and guide
its care. 35% to 42% of patients who experience back pain for the first time visit a chiropractor.
Chiropractors employ hands-on spinal manipulation, exercise,
and diet and refer to specialists when required for
integrative, cooperative care. Your Richmond chiropractic is
