Richmond Exercise Helps with Back Pain Relief and Strength

“Doc, what kind of exercise do you think would help?”

“The kind that you’ll do!”

There is some humor in that answer, but it’s true, too. Exercise that you’ll do is the most useful exercise of all! Whether you have Richmond neck pain or Richmond back pain, strengthening exercise comes in handy. Johnson Chiropractic is ready to help you find exercise you will do and exercise that will help you.


General strength and conditioning exercise helps chronic low back pain patients, particularly in terms of pain intensity reduction. Comparing general strength and conditioning exercise to motor control exercise with manual therapy made known that the general exercise was more apt to deliver a more assorted range of treatment results. Specifically, the general exercise bettered trunk endurance, leg muscle strength and endurance, disability, multifidus muscle volume, and fear of doing daily activities for patients with chronic low back pain. (1) A Cochrane Review of published medical literature revealed that motor control exercise is more successful in reducing chronic low back pain than minimal intervention, but, alone, motor control exercise does not stand out to be better than other exercise or manual therapy for pain relief. (2) What’s that mean? General strength and conditioning exercise is advantageous to decrease pain by improving the overall body condition. Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond back pain patients establish an exercise practice that works for them to maximize pain reduction and improve strength.


Johnson Chiropractic also works to maximize back pain reduction and strength improvement by blending exercise with chiropractic treatment. Johnson Chiropractic uses The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to enhance such clinical outcomes. A new report says that blending manipulative treatment with exercise decreased pain and improved functional disability more than exercise only for non-specific neck pain sufferers. (3) Together, your Richmond chiropractor and you will figure out the proper exercises and the best suited exercise routine to complement your Richmond chiropractic treatment plan to get you back to your best life possible!
