Chiropractic care is appropriate for low back pain (1)
, and that’s
not just Johnson Chiropractic’s opinion. This comes from published medical research!
Chiropractic care helps relieve low back pain
as well as related leg pain
. Johnson Chiropractic
offers Richmond chiropractic care that is non-surgical
and gentle to Richmond back pain sufferers no matter who they are!
An interesting statistic came in the spine research this
week that orthopedic trauma surgeons experience low back pain as the number one
work-related musculoskeletal disorder they experience themselves (more than 66%
of them). What was the most common disorder? Low back pain (29.3%). (2) Unfortunately, the report doesn’t share
what those surgeons do for their low back pain. (Johnson Chiropractic would welcome
them right alongside all our other Richmond low back pain patients!) Do
they go to a fellow surgeon, or do they seek out spinal manipulation as published
So, understandably from your Richmond chiropractor’s
perspective and experience, published guidelines recommend spinal manipulation.
The American Pain Society and the American College Of Physicians recommend spinal manipulation as primary care of low back
pain. The guidelines further point out that other approaches are not effective
(prolotherapy, facet joint injection, intradiscal steroid injection),
short-lived (epidural steroid injections), moderately effective for
post-surgical back pain (spinal cord stimulator), and beneficial short-term but
not long term versus non-surgical care (surgery for herniated disc with
radiculopathy). (3) Johnson Chiropractic
would hope that surgeons would feel
right at home with all of our other Richmond low back pain patients.
The relieving Richmond chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment at Johnson Chiropractic doesn’t
discriminate. It is here to help Richmond low back pain sufferers.
Then this new consensus study just came out, too. It concludes
that the reviewed evidence supports that concept that “doctors of chiropractic
are well suited to diagnose, treat, co-manage, and manage the treatment of
patients with low back pain disorders”. (1) For us chiropractors who see
ourselves as back pain specialists, this is welcome news. Your
Richmond chiropractor feels up to the task of caring for the low back
pain patient, acute or chronic, the leg patient patient, the neck pain patient,
the arm pain patient. The chiropractic technique offered at Johnson Chiropractic,
Cox Technic, is well documented, researched and evidence-based to address all
of these issues. Its published results share the relief that patients of all
sorts find whether they are post-surgical with continued pain or have chronic
low back pain or acute low back pain. Richmond chiropractic patients
come from all walks of life.
Lastly, another study reveals that chiropractic is beneficial for
military folks, too. Chiropractors are being
integrated into the military and veteran health care facilities. As they are,
it’s found that their collaboration in the care of these patients focuses on reducing
morbidity and helping rehabilitate military personnel to full duty status. And
the patient satisfaction is high with the chiropractic services. (4)
Richmond chiropractic patients express their satisfaction with the
chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic everyday,too!
