Richmond Chiropractic Treatment Plan Includes Exercise to Prevent Back Pain

Chiropractic and back pain relief go together well. (Richmond chiropractic services are plentiful to encourage that combo!) When your Richmond chiropractor tells someone about being a chiropractor, the other person often starts sharing his/her personal story of back pain or leg pain or sciatica or neck pain (or that of a family member)! Your Richmond chiropractor loves it! Richmond back pain sufferers are welcomed to come for Richmond chiropractic care to get rid of their current back pain and pick up ways to prevent future episodes that they can put into action and impart to friends and family. One of the most important tips Johnson Chiropractic shares is that exercise (the proper type for each individual) works.


Exercise works to thwart low back pain in most adults. The 12,721 patient study (NHANES) compared those who did no muscle strengthening activity, did it just one day a week, or did it two days weekly. The result: exercising with muscle strengthening activities at least (or rather just) 2 days a week slashes the odds of low back pain. (Side note: Smoking influences this. Recommendation: Don’t smoke.) (1) Johnson Chiropractic is certain that our Richmond chiropractic patients can squeeze in a couple times a week for some exercise like this to reduce the danger of low back pain!


Exercise as an element of the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan at Johnson Chiropractic works for pregnancy-related back pain lessening and prevention. A new study of findings from 11 studies of 2347 pregnant women shares that exercise reduces the risk of pregnancy-related low back pain. Sick leave because of low back pain during pregnancy is diminished, too. (2) Johnson Chiropractic knows our Richmond pregnant patients desire to do what is best for their health as well as their baby’s. Exercise may be agreat self-care/baby-care activity!


Exercise works for middle-aged employees. Muscle strength bettered and low back pain decreased in a 5 month study of employees who did at-home exercises. Trunk muscle strength and low back pain improved in all workers and for those with pre-existing chronic low back pain. Work ability improved, too. (3) Johnson Chiropractic checks your strength and back pain improvement at your Richmond chiropractic appointments.


Schedule a Richmond chiropractic visit with Johnson Chiropractic for some information on exercises to help you get relief of Richmond back pain and/or prevent Richmond back pain. Richmond chiropractic care and Richmond back pain relief really do go together in Johnson Chiropractic’s treatment plan.
