Richmond Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There’s something for everyone! Johnson Chiropractic hopes to inspire our Richmond back pain patients to exercise to keep their back pain in check.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is one annoying back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise. All the participants reported that exercise improved their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary. They needed to keep doing them. The most common reasons for not carrying on with these activities were additional health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight to no effect. The community group exercise offered social support and participants kept going to these classes after the study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were so important. (1) Johnson Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and watch our Richmond back pain patients get Richmond back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.


A recent study found that six weeks of twice-a-week (better than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of disc herniation with sciatica patients responded to active, energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what it’s all about at Johnson Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Richmond chiropractor must everything possible to manage the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology. Johnson Chiropractic is ready and able to do just that to bring relief to our Richmond back pain patients! Exercise, spinal manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
