Getting Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Lynchburg chiropractic patients know that seeing their chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain reduces. Lynchburg chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Palmer Chiropractic Center. A benefit Lynchburg chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize because they are chiropractic patients presently is that consulting a chiropractor reduces the odds of back surgery. A new report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain injury. 42.7% of workers who saw a surgeon|first saw a surgeon first underwent surgery while only 1.5% of those who consulted a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is noted particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Lynchburg back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is most welcome!
