Spinal manipulation gets increased endorsements from healthcare professions as the recommended care for back pain.

Spine researchers and authors recommend spinal manipulation and define what that is. After reviewing studies that spinal manipulative therapy improved low back pain with gains that maintained for up to 6 weeks and was cost effective, the American College of Physicians integrated spinal manipulation in its recommendations for acute, subacute and chronic low back pain care. (1) Spinal manipulation is treatment of spine and pelvic related joints while manipulative therapy is treatment of other body joints including upper and lower extremities to improve pain and function. For back pain, The Pain Task Force of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health recommended both as the evidence-based non-pharmacological approaches for pain relief. (1)  In an effort to differentiate flexion distraction from high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust adjusting, researchers explain it as low velocity low amplitude (LVLA) or low velocity variable amplitude (LVVA) spinal manipulation. Researchers have established a pain-relieving effect of LVVA spinal manipulation. (2) Any way it is described, flexion distraction spinal manipulation is a gentle spinal manipulation procedure. It produces clinical outcomes favorable for Richmond back pain patients.


For lumbar spinal stenosis, gentle spinal manipulation is effective. Distraction manipulation and neural mobilization appear to be positive treatment techniques to improve disability for spinal stenosis patients. 66.7% of patients in one study rated overall treatment  improvement at 65.1%. On follow up (16.5 months), 73.2% of them rated their improvement at 75.6%. (3) Johnson Chiropractic seeks at least 50% improvement in the first month of care. Medicine explains that 30% relief of pain after its care is good. (4) Johnson Chiropractic takes care of Richmond back pain patients with lumbar spinal stenosis routinely using Cox Technic. Johnson Chiropractic appreciates seeing the joy of pain relief for Richmond spinal stenosis sufferers all the time.
