Chiropractic Care for Lynchburg Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Ok, that’s a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a central report titled “Where to turn for low back pain relief. In most cases, a primary care doctor or chiropractor can help you resolve the problem.” presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers ought to consult for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center or primary care doctor. Dr. Matthew Kowalski, a chiropractor on staff at Harvard’s Osher Clinical Center for Integrative Medicine at the Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their initial episode of back pain. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center concurs that many of the Lynchburg back pain sufferers coming for Lynchburg chiropractic care do so with a first attack of Lynchburg back pain.


That first episode of Lynchburg back pain care is important as to how the first Lynchburg back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The objective, certainly, would be to block all future Lynchburg back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic. And that is ok, too. There is control. Control of body motions like bending, lifting and twisting. Control of body muscle like exercising what there is (or is not of muscle!) to make it strong and resilient. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is fundamental. Palmer Chiropractic Center presents a well-rounded Lynchburg treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Lynchburg chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at Palmer Chiropractic Center) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to lessen back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode specialist recognizes back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another form of care, the chiropractor will orchestrate that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors collaborate with all these of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter states that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”
