Help for Richmond Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Johnson Chiropractic

Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control. - Joseph Pilates

No wonder we were often told to stand up straight! Posture matters. Richmond back pain patients know this. Johnson Chiropractic makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Johnson Chiropractic treats poor posture and back pain together. Johnson Chiropractic and our Richmond chiropractic patients experience improvement in one often results in improvement in the other.


Many factors play a role in how posture and Richmond back pain are linked. The body mechanism really is at work as Pilates says. Researchers write that poor posture is reported to change joint position and produce pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is bettered when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research reports that even plantar heel pain patients experience more low back pain as well as higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) If one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is known to occur on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may produce back pain. Johnson Chiropractic takes care of this myriad of issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for all of our Richmond back pain patients.


A basis of the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Richmond back pain and postural issues is frequently manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). Johnson Chiropractic chooses this option as spinal research presents that it is valuable together with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment boosts posture improvement and low pain reduction more significantly than low back massage. (6) Three treatments of manipulation improved posture control and reduced pain in a female patient experiencing low back pain and uneven balance. (7) Johnson Chiropractic offers posture-correcting, pain-reducing Richmond chiropractic care.
