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 at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
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.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES 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.
