McHenry Chiropractic Healthy News December 2017

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers chiropractic care like Harvard recommends.


OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is happy to share this news: The Harvard Health Letter recommends chiropractic use for back pain due to disc herniation, sprain and strain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows its McHenry chiropractic services help these conditions all the time! It is wonderful to see this recommendation in print.

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. OrthoIllinois 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 diagnose your problem and guide its care. 35% to 42% of patients who experience back pain for the first time seek care from a chiropractor. Chiropractors utilize hands-on spinal manipulation, exercise, and diet and refer to specialists when needed for integrative, cooperative care. Your McHenry chiropractic is quite skilled in working like this with McHenry medical providers.

Bottomline: Harvard’s Health Letter recommends 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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is the McHenry back pain specialist, confident in its care of these conditions with the Cox Technic System of Spinal Care Management.
