Harvard Medical School Newsletter Endorses Chiropractic
Many years ago, institutions such as Consumer Reports and Bottom Line Personal would never endorse the chiropractic profession, however, over the past few years, with more research and better acceptance by both the general public, the government and with more doctors using and endorsing chiropractic care from their own experiences, it was inevitable that Harvard would also eventually endorse the profession as well.
Chiropractic continues to grow and develop as a profession, but it’s efficiency and effectiveness, when compared to other methods such as physical therapy which are well established continues to be acknowledged, leading to a growing acceptance of what we do.
Having Harvard endorse our profession is a big thing. Check out their article here. While their point of view is somewhat limited, this endorsement is worthwhile and I am happy to share it with you.
Chiropractic care for pain relief
Chiropractic is a health care system that holds that the structure of the body, particularly the spine, affects the function of every part of the body. Chiropractors try to correct the body’s alignment to relieve pain and improve function and to help the body heal itself.
While the mainstay of chiropractic is spinal manipulation, chiropractic care now includes a wide variety of other treatments, including manual or manipulative therapies, postural and exercise education, ergonomic training (how to walk, sit, and stand to limit back strain), nutritional consultation, and even ultrasound and laser therapies. In addition, chiropractors today often work in conjunction with primary care doctors, pain experts, and surgeons to treat patients with pain.
