Walking is important
for Richmond living. How often do you think about walking? How often are you grateful
for the ability to put one foot in front of the other?
Most Richmond folks do not give walking a second thought
until we or a Richmond loved one can not do it or isn’t able do it as easily as we once
did. Chronic non-specific low back pain
tends to disrupt
Richmond back pain patients’ motor control while walking. It’s thought that the
erector spinae are operating intensely
in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region
and more difficult time walking. (1)
A new report shows that spinal manipulation in combination with
individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back
like those Johnson Chiropractic sees every day who are dealing
with lumbar spinal stenosis
better than medical care (medications/epidural
steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2)
spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also promotes
the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient
The Richmond chiropractic care
at Johnson Chiropractic uses
one or all these tactics as needed to get
you the Richmond back pain relief you desire and keep
you walking without a doubt.

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!
It does not require much to better
your health, reduce your back pain, and lessen
your experience of cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A new report says
that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise once a week makes
a difference. Such exercise enriches overall physical
health and decreases the incidence
of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain.
(4) Let us – you and Johnson Chiropractic - talk about how
you might spend those 60 minutes with useful,
do-able exercises just for you, our Richmond chiropractic patient!
