Your English teacher was right: Words have power.

Use positive words to support your Richmond loved one as he/she gets chiropractic care for relief.

Using the power of words to help a friend or family member cope with pain, back pain, neck pain, arm pain or leg pain is so important. Johnson Chiropractic understands this, so that's why you'll hear our Richmond chiropractic team members speak confidently of our Richmond chiropractic spine pain care. We believe in the relief we can help you achieve, so you will, too.

Now, that relief is not always 100%. In an ideal world, that may be the goal, but for so many Richmond back pain and neck pain sufferers who have experienced the back pain or leg pain for weeks, months or even years and tried so many different types of care, a 50% or 75% or 90% relief of pain is welcome even gratifying. Controlling back pain so it doesn't control you may be a worthy goal. 50% may even be considered an excellent clinical outcome. Just ask a back pain sufferer who isn't able to take a walk around the block if walking a block again would be good. Johnson Chiropractic is all about helping our Richmond chiropractic patients experience the best quality of life possible.

So, do you realize that as a husband, wife, sibling, friend, relative, or significant other, you are very important in determining the success of treatment for your loved one's Richmond back pain condition. Understanding a health problem and its treatment options and outcomes is mandatory to work together toward relief and return to work and life. Pushing for more tests or expecting complete relief for a loved one may actually be detrimental to the loved one's recovery. (1)

Therefore, be positive with your back pain suffering friend or family member. Use your words carefully. Want an example? Say “I know you'll feel better.” instead of “I hope you'll feel better.” Be affirmative. Also, Johnson Chiropractic invites you to be involved so you can be genuinely positive in your support of our Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for your friend or loved one. Pain relief is possible, and the power of words plays a big role in it.
