Continued Richmond Chiropractic Care Benefits Back Pain Management

Regular Richmond chiropractic care. A good idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars. Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times a year to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart Association recommend performing at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity each week to have an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 150 minutes a week to maintain optimal health for the body.  Nutritionists recommend proper food intake a day: fruits, veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to feed the body well. Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2) Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not necessarily every day once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Johnson Chiropractic treats many Richmond chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Richmond chiropractic patients who choose such care to maintain healthy and pain-free spines as best they can.

BACK PAIN STATS

80% of us humans will have at least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of us experiences back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities. Johnson Chiropractic often advises patients that the current episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t be disregarded. Your spine will welcome an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as well as a plan to maintain its mobility and health.

CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS

That is where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Surely our Richmond chiropractic patients know that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again! While there is no assurance that back pain or neck pain will not come back, keeping that pain at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthy goal as is a goal to be able to do everyday activities as pain free and worry free as possible. A recent study titled the Nordic Maintenance Care Program stated that such chiropractic maintenance care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that reduced activities and increased the number of pain free weeks between episodes. These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not stop new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Richmond back pain patients, Johnson Chiropractic is here.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Joel Dixon  on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes how 20 years of maintenance care helped his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
