No Exercise Often Increases Risk of More Richmond Pain & Disease Progression

Do something. Move. Walk. Stretch. Pain sufferers benefit when they do something. No exercising is a risk for worsening pain, both pain in the body and pain in the mind in the form of depression. Johnson Chiropractic takes care of many Richmond back pain patients in pain who also suffer with depression. Johnson Chiropractic also knows that when our Richmond chiropractic patients do something, they improve in body and mind.

NO EXERCISE INCREASES RISK OF STENOSIS PROGRESSION

Spinal stenosis is a common diagnosis. It’s the reduction of the spinal canal area because of degeneration. A new study revealed that risk of spinal stenosis progression is higher for those who had spondylolisthesis, experienced pain (in leg and/or back) when walking, and more severe stenosis. The absence of therapeutic exercise was also discovered to a risk factor for the advancement of spinal stenosis. (1) Back pain sufferers like those who have spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis benefit from exercise! Johnson Chiropractic helps each of our chiropractic patients find what exercise fits them.

EXERCISE ENHANCES FUNCTION

Nonspecific low back pain sufferers enhanced their functional disability level more with stabilization and/or McKenzie exercises than with conventional exercise programs. (2) Notice though that exercise did help, whether or not it was conventional!

EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION

For many back pain sufferers with specific or non-specific back pain, chronic or not, may well find themselves a little sad when their back pain sticks around longer than desired. It’s not unusual. Again, exercise helps! Another study reported that exercise (low dose or moderate-dose strength and conditioning) helped reduce depressive symptoms in adults with chronic low back pain. Combining exercise and manual therapy was a bonus! (3) Johnson Chiropractic incorporates as many beneficial approaches to back pain relief as possible to help our Richmond back pain patients! The Cox® Technic System of Spine Pain Management is one of those approaches.
