HARVARD RECOMMENDS CHIROPRACTIC
Johnson Chiropractic is eager to share this
update: The Harvard Health Letter endorses chiropractic
use for back pain due to disc herniation, sprain and strain. Johnson Chiropractic
knows its Richmond chiropractic services help these conditions all
the time! It’s great to see this recommendation in
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 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 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 Richmond chiropractic is
very knowledgeable in
coordinating care like this with Richmond
Bottomline: Harvard’s Health Letter advises
