Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows its St. Francisville chiropractic services help these conditions all the time! It’s great to see this recommendation in print.

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 appears. Common sources of it are a sprain (ligament issue), strain (muscle/tendon issue), and herniated (slipped) disc. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 makes clear that a primary care physician or chiropractor can diagnose your problem and manage its care. 35% to 42% of patients with their first episode of back pain seek care from a chiropractor. Chiropractors utilize hands-on spinal manipulation, exercise, and diet and refer to specialists as needed for integrative, cooperative care. Your St. Francisville chiropractic is very skilled in working like this with St. Francisville medical providers.
