Richmond KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Richmond knee pain is a pain that Johnson Chiropractic sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical procedures abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is revealing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic daily for Richmond back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for application with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study had any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Johnson Chiropractic’s Richmond chiropractic care! Richmond knee pain sufferers are invited to feel this gentle, relieving Richmond knee pain treatment!

 

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Richmond elder folks benefit even more. A recent article reports that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Johnson Chiropractic agrees as these two are seen frequently in this Richmond chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Johnson Chiropractic will share some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do at home alongside the Richmond chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
