Johnson Chiropractic offers pain-relieving and opioid-use risk-reducing treatment that may return a neck pain or back pain patient to a more desirable life with reduced pain.


Richmond chronic pain experienced by a person makes him/her a member of a group s/he didn’t really plan  to join. Chronic pain, pain that lasts for more than 3 months, affects a Richmond pain sufferers’ quality of life and that of those around him/her. This is where chiropractic comes into play. Chiropractors like your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic treat Richmond patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain daily. 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 ended with the conclusion that chiropractic furthers the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that integrated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with a long history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her overall care approach. Most recently, she experienced 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 lifetime, depression, opioid dependence, and low quality of life. After 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain as well as nutrition and exercise recommendations, she described improvement in pain and quality of life plus cessation of opioid pain medications.

Johnson Chiropractic enjoys witnessing Richmond chiropractic patients’ joy when this happens.


Though third-party payers like to limit coverage for chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor on a more frequent basis for “maintenance care” is advantageous. A new study compared patients who got chiropractic care for bothersome low back pain more often to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a consistent basis was more effective in decreasing the total number of days annually that patients suffered troubling low back pain. Yes, these patients had more chiropractic visits, but they experienced less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be taken into consideration a low back pain prevention option.
