Distraction Therapy plus Exercise for Back Pain Relief

Johnson Chiropractic delivers pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic provides Richmond chiropractic distraction therapy. Johnson Chiropractic directs exercise for back pain relief and spine stabilization and strengthening. It is an unbeatable combination of care! Exercise and distraction therapy in a solid Richmond chiropractic treatment plan produces Richmond back pain relief. And for patients desiring to avoid back surgery, this chiropractic approach proposes a non-surgical option.


Johnson Chiropractic teams up with our Richmond back pain patients to create the relieving treatment plan. Johnson Chiropractic’s experience directs this development. Helping Richmond back pain patients get relief is what Johnson Chiropractic does.  Does such confidence and experience offer better outcomes for Richmond chiropractic patients? Quite possibly reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient expects a good outcome from the care he or she is receiving, the odds of a positive outcome are increased. What about the fondness for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s fondness  for treatment type influence the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s does not as much. Intriguing! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief rose by 69.3 times when that back pain patient received care from a healthcare provider team which strongly favored the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method did not influence the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) So good! Your Richmond chiropractor is sure that the Richmond treatment plan which likely includes Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will aid Richmond pain patients. Johnson Chiropractic has witnessed many Richmond back pain patients experience great relief!


Including non-surgical distraction therapy to the treatment of lumbar disc herniation aids the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks underwent electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. The patients improved. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness dropped. But those patients who also underwent the distraction therapy did better. Their clinical and radiological evidence at the end of care shows improvement. The disc herniation reduction was more evident in the patients with distraction therapy addition to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Johnson Chiropractic sees it all the time!


Johnson Chiropractic takes a multi-faceted approach to back pain reduction. Spinal manipulation with Cox Technic flexion distraction intermingled with patient exercises to stabilize and strengthen the back along with nutrition, educational tools, and other modalities like heat/ice, massage, and trigger point therapy delivers relief for Richmond back pain.
