Johnson Chiropractic Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world people, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and military/veteran care systems. The newer curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Richmond back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Richmond chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often curbs their independence and multiplies their doctor visits. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care alone. (2) Johnson Chiropractic sees these same outcomes for our Richmond back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who utilized only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter occurrences of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a triple bonus for Richmond back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and get relief with chiropractic care. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management discovered in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (5)) A related finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel with low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain intensity and disability was documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The goal of Richmond chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic is prepared to provide that!
