Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Richmond chiropractic patients realize that visiting their chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Richmond chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Johnson Chiropractic. A benefit Richmond chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize because they are chiropractic patients already is that seeing a chiropractor reduces the chance of back surgery. A new report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain injury. 42.7% of workers who saw a surgeon|first went to a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment works wonders on the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is documented particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Richmond back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is most welcome!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she came to see him for her back pain and discovered relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Johnson Chiropractic wishes joy for all our Richmond back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.
