“Exercise? Didn’t you hear me say my back (or neck)
Johnson Chiropractic hears you! Johnson Chiropractic knows your back
hurts. Many Richmond chiropractic patients come for just that motivation:
Richmond back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Richmond spinal stenosis or a Richmond disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or goes
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible by our joint
effort: Richmond chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
Richmond SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain bothers a patient.
(1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Johnson Chiropractic checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
Richmond NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief lasts up to 6 months later.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important
component in Richmond pain relief treatment plans.
Johnson Chiropractic is skilled at setting
these up for our Richmond chiropractic patients!
Richmond BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with marked lower abdominal wall muscular laxity were treated
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening
the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and increasing the efficiency of these muscles so that their effectiveness as spine
stabilizers is increased. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
as an option for patients with weak ab
muscles and stubborn low back pain who have not been
helped by conservative management. (4)
Johnson Chiropractic can recommend you some individualized
exercises that will be just right for you before resorting to a surgery!
INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon
exercise like walking)
Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent
claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a
supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had
patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients kept
at these programs which both proved effective
in improving claudication measures similar to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful
in getting patients to exercise in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Johnson Chiropractic
is ready to be your community!
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
Richmond back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Johnson Chiropractic
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
great alternative to try to reduce back pain and improve disability. (7)
Richmond POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise commencing one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more distinct
functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce
back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Johnson Chiropractic will help you explore
the best exercise option for you!
