Lynchburg chronic pain experienced by an individual makes him/her a member of a group s/he didn’t choose  to join. Chronic pain, pain that lasts for over 3 months, affects a Lynchburg pain sufferers’ quality of life and that of those around him/her. This is where chiropractic comes into play. Chiropractors like your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center see Lynchburg patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain all the time. A recent study of 2,024 chiropractic patients in the US reported that, as a group, these chronic pain patients found significant improvement in their health-related quality of life over time, especially for pain. The study concluded that chiropractic benefits the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain discovered relief when chiropractic care was added to her overall care approach. Most recently, she suffered with neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years earlier. Additionally, she noted knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and minimal quality of life. At 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain as well as nutrition and exercise suggestions, she described improvement in pain and quality of life as well as discontinuation of opioid pain medications.

Palmer Chiropractic Center enjoys seeing Lynchburg chiropractic patients’ joy when this happens.


Though third-party payers like to limit coverage for chiropractic care, visiting a chiropractor on a more frequent basis for “maintenance care” is useful. A new study compared patients who received chiropractic care for troubling low back pain regularly to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a consistent basis was more effective in lessening the total number of days in a year that patients had bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients had more chiropractic appointments, but they had less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
