Chronic lower back pain is awful! If you have it, you know it. When you wake up in the morning worried about hurting or try to not move a certain way so you won’t hurt your lower back, you get tired of chronic lower back pain. Johnson Chiropractic understands and is here to help.

Richmond chronic lower back pain responds well to our chiropractic care which includes exercise recommendations to your tolerance. Researchers study exercise for chronic lower back pain relief and report that exercise relieves it. (1). How? It all starts with your head, rather within your head. Let go of the fear. Fear of pain holds you back from enjoying your life in Richmond. Successful exercise for chronic lower back pain relief starts slowly and easily and building up to more over time. The goal of exercise isn’t to run a marathon or mountain climb necessarily, but to enjoy your life again. Right?
