January 2019 Richmond Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Richmond walking is an issue, Richmond chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

Richmond WALKING 
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 pain patients 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) Further, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also promotes the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) 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.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Dan Shuman on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about leg pain relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System and exercise.

 Johnson Chiropractic encourages exercise for improved physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

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!
