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
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
