Exercise Enhances Chiropractic Back Pain Relief Plan

Exercise is effective and helpful. It goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts. Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic knows our Richmond chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what they used to do.

Lax muscles reduce motion in low back pain patients. Johnson Chiropractic knows this isn’t good for our Richmond back pain patients! What makes these muscles weak? Fat. With back pain comes more fat infiltration into the back muscles, muscles like the lumbar multifidus muscles which greatly influence the range of motion in lumbar spine. Fattier multifidi, less lumbar flexion. (1)

One article shares that doing a little exercise does a lot! Muscle strengthening activity performed just two days a week reduces the odds of low back pain. (And this article, as a side note, suggests that smoking is also an influential factor in the equation of whether you get back pain or not.  Recommendation: Don’t smoke!) (2) Johnson Chiropractic presents simple exercises you can do in a short amount of time from the comfort of your own bedroom if you like! You will see just how big an impact these exercises will make on your healing.

Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers benefit from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting the pain perception by increasing your pain threshold and dropping your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do work. Johnson Chiropractic will who you how to do them so you can experience the most possible back pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic is with you, our Richmond back pain patient, during your healing process with as much support as you need.

Back school is another such support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended over many other types of care. (4) Johnson Chiropractic uses spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.

Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment plan enriches the positives of back pain rehabilitation. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5) Johnson Chiropractic attempts to educate our back pain patients as to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at least minimize future occurrences. One study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office. Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with going to the class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time to share the material. (6) Richmond chiropractic patients at Johnson Chiropractic are some of the wisest and knowledgeable spine-informed people around!
