What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Do like to hear “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” 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.


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 tough to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also reduce your quality and enjoyment of life.


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)
