Richmond Chiropractic Care Helps Back Pain After Back Surgery Surgery and Integrates Extension Exercise into the Treatment Plan

Johnson Chiropractic offers back pain relief to patients who have already undergone back surgery and still have pain. 

 
Richmond BACK SURGERY? STILL HAVE PAIN?
Chiropractic Cox® Technic Can Help.

Many Richmond back pain patients undergo back surgery expecting Richmond back pain relief. That expectation is not always met. Johnson Chiropractic hears this from Richmond back surgery patients and reads it in the spine literature.  49-58% relief of pain for sciatica (leg pain) due to a disc herniation is usual. (1) Post-surgical back pain patients may discover that they have back pain after Richmond back surgery. What are some choices? Spinal manipulation and exercise is one relieving option. The American College of Physicians and American Pain Society suggest spinal manipulation for low back pain relief. (2) One patient reported 89% improvement with 12 spinal manipulation sessions plus exercise. (3) A study of 69 post-surgical back pain patients treated with Cox® Technic - like they are at Johnson Chiropractic – found that 81% of patients exhibited at least 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients had continued pain relief at 24 months follow up. (4) Richmond chiropractic relief for post-surgical back pain patients often meets a patient’s expectation of back pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic invites you or a suffering friend or family member to visit today.

Listen to this PODCAST on The Back Doctors’ Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson in which Dr. David Atiyeh describes a patient who had undergone back surgery expecting pain relief and post-surgically discovered pain relief with chiropractic Cox® Technic care.

Johnson Chiropractic recommends extensor strengthening exercises when back pain patients are ready for them.

TIP OF THE MONTH:
Extension Exercise

Richmond back pain sufferers frequently experience relief by flexing forward just a bit, not flexing backward into extension. (Read the SPINE article May 2018 on our website about why!) Extension is not all bad. A healthy spine can extend. A healthy spine requires strong back muscles to support all its movements. Strengthening those extensor muscles to stop Richmond back pain is important. Research shows that lumbar spine extension weakness and extensor muscle deconditioning are found in Richmond chiropractic patients with chronic low back pain. (5) Why? Back muscles degenerate in back pain sufferers like spinal discs degenerate. (6) Integrate extension exercises into your day when your Richmond chiropractor tells you it is time to do so. Johnson Chiropractic can help!
