Camelot, a shining time of promise led by John F. Kennedy, the nation’s youngest president brought to an abrupt and bloody end in 1963. While conspiracy theorists debate who pulled the trigger, there’s another culprit that often goes unmentioned: Kennedy’s lifelong struggle with back pain. It was his habit of wearing a tightly laced back brace that may have kept him from recoiling to the floor of his car after the assassin’s first bullet struck him in the neck.

“The brace was a firmly bound corset, around his hips and lower back and higher up,” said Dr. Thomas Pait, a spinal neurosurgeon who co-authored a paper about Kennedy’s failed back surgeries and other treatments such as manipulation under anesthesia.  “He tightly laced it and put a wide Ace bandage around in a figure eight around his trunk.

Harvard Health Publishing is an arm of the prestigious Harvard Medical School. The publisher’s tag line is “Trusted advice for a healthier life.” The Harvard Medical School is one of the more notable exceptions to the rule that medical establishments are generally anti-chiropractic. Its Special Health Report “Pain Relief: Natural and Alternative Remedies Without Drugs or Surgery,” was published in 2015.

Last month the Harvard Health Letter featured an article: “Where to Turn for Low Back Pain Relief.” The article answers the question: “In most cases, a primary care doctor or chiropractor can help resolve the problem.”

Chiropractic Care and Risk for Acute Lumbar Disc Herniation

Chiropractic care is popular for low back pain.  Low back pain is a common early symptom of Lumbar Disc Herniation (LDH) and commonly precedes LDH diagnosis.  Strong positive associations were found between acute LDH and both chiropractic and PCP visits. The risk for acute LDH with early surgery associated with chiropractic visits was no higher than the risk associated with PCP visits.   

The analysis suggests that patients with prodromal back pain from a developing disc herniation likely seek healthcare from both chiropractors and PCPs before full clinical expression of acute LDH. 

The objective of this study was to investigate the association between chiropractic care and acute LDH with early surgical intervention, and contrast this with the association between primary care physician (PCP) care and acute LDH with early surgery.
