What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing
to you? We all like options! We all have preferences.
Your Richmond chiropractor is up for offering
you options when it comes to exercise. Johnson Chiropractic just hopes you
exercise. You pick how! When you get to pick,
the outcomes are better with regards to
satisfaction and pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic's chiropractic care is all about you and your Richmond back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR SATISFACTION
Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised
rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with
chronic low back pain enhances their satisfaction with
care. (1) Could this result from having a professional check on you and
your healing occasionally? If you are performing
home exercise all by yourself, you don’t benefit from someone caring for you,
checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you
are improving. Johnson Chiropractic is here for our Richmond
chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise guidance
and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is hard
to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also reduce
your quality and enjoyment of life.
DO WHAT YOU WANT
Johnson Chiropractic wishes our Richmond
back pain patients to do what they want and like
what they do. Exercise is essential. Performing a type
of exercise that a back pain patient prefers increases
the chance that he or she will exercise. What do
you enjoy doing? A recent study of older adults – 65
to 85 years – compared the effectiveness of
Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The
study suggests that either will decrease pain and increase
balance and function and that Pilates may be more helpful
since its exercises aim at the trunk
stabilization muscles. Either way, having a patient choose an
exercise program is the
goal to enhance patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and
quality of life. (2)
