“Ommm…” leads to “Ahhhh…”
for many Richmond low back pain patients.
Johnson Chiropractic advocates for its
chiropractic low back pain patients to try therapies and exercises that make them say "ahhh" ! We’ve seen many of our
patients try yoga and really like it. Their lower back pain eases with yoga practice as well as
with their chiropractic care. Of course, Johnson Chiropractic also encourages our back pain patients to talk with us before kicking off any new exercise program, but yoga may prove to be a good one to try.
Now, it's not that those who practice yoga are free of
health problems. Many Richmond yoga participants likely take yoga
classes and practice it at home because they like it. And partaking in yoga
only once or twice a week doesn't really matter. One study found
participants benefited from care either way. (1) So schedule just a class a week and see how well you feel!
Interestingly, in another study of those who practice yoga,
60% reported having at least one chronic or serious health condition. But most yoga folks believe that their health
is improved because of yoga. And that's great! Elderly women and those battling
with chronic health problems may be two groups that truly benefit most from
yoga. A few of the overall improvements
yoga participants report are in their
- Levels of happiness
- Social relationships
- Weight management (2)
So consider yoga if you haven't before. Chat with us first
before starting yoga, but it may be a great addition to your back pain treatment
plan. We look forward to working with you and hearing your "ahhh..." ! Contact Johnson Chiropractic today.
