Richmond Spinal Manipulation Relieves Back Pain

Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is “it,” and Johnson Chiropractic has it. Spinal manipulation is showing up in increasingly more medical guidelines for back pain relief. Medical care guidelines are endorsing spinal manipulation as a conservative, non-drug way to relieve back pain, expressly in the upsurge of opioid addiction that many times starts with medications for back pain control. Today, spinal manipulation is “it”! Johnson Chiropractic provides Richmond spinal manipulation in a safe, gentle, relieving way with chiropractic Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Spinal Manipulation.

Non-Drug Care First for Back Pain

The latest medical back pain care guidelines circulated include those from the American College of Physicians (internists). Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, these guidelines delineate three types of back pain: acute/subacute, chronic, and non-responsive. For the acute/subacute/chronic back pain patients, spinal manipulation is a treatment method recommendation. (1) It is non-invasive and non-pharmacological. Johnson Chiropractic emphasizes that it is effective! It is evidence-based.

The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article endorsing spinal manipulation.  One is a review of published randomized clinical trials. (Johnson Chiropractic points out that these review studies are high level research!) This review focuses on acute low back pain (pain that persists for up to 6 weeks). It reports that spinal manipulation reveals modest improvement in pain and function with no adverse effects. (2) Compared with recent reports of the opioid epidemic and the risk of oral steroids (3), no adverse effects is huge! That should excite Richmond back pain patients! The other is an editorial comment by a prominent medical doctor, Richard Deyo MD, who concurs that spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is suitable and supplies at least equal if not better results than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). (4) Johnson Chiropractic mentions that Richmond chiropractic care with Cox Technic is evidence-based and gentle and safe.

What Care Is Offered 

Medicine recognizes that back pain is prevalent and life-altering. Drugs are short term aid that may turn into long term concern. Surgery is appropriate for some back pain sufferers whose conditions justify it – progressive neurological deficit and/or cauda equina syndrome among others in most cases. Fortunately, most Richmond back pain doesn’t demand such intervention and can be tended to conservatively.
