Palmer Chiropractic Center Helps Back Pain Patients Manage Their Back Pain

Chiropractic’s goal is to provide the back pain patient a sense of control over the back pain and to live through the pain and not avoid life. That is also the goal of your Lynchburg chiropractor: gentle, pain-relieving, conservative care of spine pain. It’s a partnership involving the Lynchburg back pain sufferer, the back pain care giver, and even the back pain payer (ie Medicare).


Being a chiropractor is amazing! A recent survey found that chiropractors like yours at Palmer Chiropractic Center relish their profession most because they are capable to decrease pain and build strength, flexibility, and power with their patients through an inclusive treatment plan. Two of the top features of being a chiropractor were reported as “being trained to diagnose”the basis for quality care and wanted clinical outcomes! -  and “being able to transform peoples’ quality of life.” (1) Your Lynchburg chiropractor concurs! Being your healthcare partner - your back pain specialist - especially in managing spine pain issues is a highlight of daily practice.


Researchers questioned how a community’s healthcare workforce impacted the care of low back pain sufferers. They discovered that one new spine surgeon increased non-conservative care episodes by 31.3 per 1000 older adults, the increase of one primary care physician reduced 2.5 conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults, and the addition of one chiropractor increased 18.7 conservative care episodes and subtracted 3.6 non-conservative care episodes per 1000 older adults. The researchers acknowledge certain limitations in their study as they pulled a specific set of patients from the 16 million Medicare Part B enrollees (who reported at least one occurrence of low back pain and relocation) which left 402,372 persons in the analysis set. (2) In the Medicare population, healthcare provider availability influences how much is expended on each beneficiary. The effect is transformed by provider type and whether the provider availability rises or falls. Spine surgeon availability was most strongly linked with higher spending. The loss of one spine surgeon in a community decreased spending. (3) In Lynchburg, back pain sufferers get a partner at Palmer Chiropractic Center who can help them with in-office care in addition to at-home self-care.


Medicine is recognizing that the one who is really at the center of managing pain and chronic disorders is the person suffering with pain and chronic disorder. When back pain happens to be the chronic issue, the low back pain sufferer self-manages most of the time anyway and desires suggestions regarding how best to do that: when to request more care (symptoms, imaging, advice), how to manage pain (behavioral changes to handle and prevent pain), and how to be confident in managing their pain independently. These all take guidance from clinicians concerning education about the condition and the partnership of the patient and the healthcare provider. (4) Lynchburg back pain sufferers and their healthcare providers like your chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center must work on how each sees back pain management to most advantageously reduce the pain!
