years old. Do I have to keep exercising?” Absolutely! The old
saying of “move it or lose it” applies! Exercise is an integral
part of the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan at Johnson Chiropractic.
And we know our Richmond chiropractic patients wax and wane
on their commitment to exercise. We get it and keep fostering
our patients’ commitment to keep moving. We know
that once you discover how good you feel with daily
exercise, you will keep doing it!
EXERCISE FOR POST-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN
For post-menopausal women it
is even more valuable to keep exercising. In the
latest|a recent study of post-menopausal women with vertebral
fractures, spinal pain, back extensor muscle strength, trunk-arm endurance,
kyphosis, functional mobility, and quality of life all improve with exercise, specifically a supervised exercise program over a home-based plan.
(1) Would you agree with Johnson Chiropractic that if there is supervision, the
exercise is more likely to be done and done the right way? We all need a little extra encouragement to
do what we ought to do on occasion.
Johnson Chiropractic does that for our Richmond back pain patients!
EXERCISE FOR ALL BACK PAIN SUFFERERS
No matter their age, Richmond
back pain patients do better with exercise. Reviewers of the
exercise-for-back-pain-relief medical literature give in to
the published evidence and propose that patients
do exercises they enjoy and can do easily.
Research’s best-evidence on therapy for chronic low back
pain states that spinal manipulation and pain neuroscience
education missed with exercise with or without psychological
therapy is advantageous. Including
the psychological component to exercise seems to produce
better outcomes that are long-lasting. (2) It’s never a bad idea|It never hurts to get
help for feelings and emotions during difficult times like experiencing back
pain or neck pain. Johnson Chiropractic appreciates the opportunity to help
back pain patients to get the care they want.
