Richmond Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Older back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Not likely! Your Richmond chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Richmond chiropractor and you the Richmond back pain sufferer form a great spine care team. Johnson Chiropractic is your local Richmond chiropractic care center where Richmond back pain patients meet their Richmond chiropractor to form a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A new high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Johnson Chiropractic appreciates this verification! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They reinforced the current statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel added two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Johnson Chiropractic agrees! Richmond chiropractic patients often look for care to eliminate their back pain. Then, they find Richmond chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Johnson Chiropractic employs is called Cox Technic. From the research studies about this approach, it’s published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Johnson Chiropractic knows exercise is important to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Johnson Chiropractic encourages all our Richmond chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.

Schedule your Richmond chiropractic visit with Johnson Chiropractic to discuss Richmond back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Richmond chiropractic care and appropriate Richmond exercise.
