The Value of Lynchburg Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embody it? Do you know what behaviors are healthy? Palmer Chiropractic Center is all for healthy living. Palmer Chiropractic Center sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Lynchburg chiropractic patients can expect their Lynchburg chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them cope with current spine pain issues but also avent future episodes of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, do they not? A recent study showed that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors are shown to reduce the possibility of developing long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially better the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be especially helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unstable. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center works with our Lynchburg back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues generates more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access makes a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief shows that their familiarity with the doctor’s treatment, social network endorsements, geographical proximity, and credentials of the doctor influenced their choice.
