June 20, 2017

Johnson Chiropractic directs exercise for back pain relief and spine stabilization and strengthening. It’s an unbeatable combination of care! Exercise and distraction therapy in a solid Richmond chiropractic treatment plan gives Richmond back pain relief.

Johnson Chiropractic cooperates with our Richmond back pain patients to create the relieving treatment plan. Johnson Chiropractic’s experience directs this development. Helping Richmond back pain patients find relief is what Johnson Chiropractic does.  With such experience and confidence, do better outcomes emerge for Richmond back pain patients at Johnson Chiropractic? Likely reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient expects a positive outcome from the care he or she is receiving, the odds of a good outcome are raised. What about the preference for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s inclination  for treatment type influence the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s does not as much. Intriguing! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief rose by 69.3 times when that back pain patient underwent care from a healthcare provider team which strongly preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method didn’t increase the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It seems the provider’s influence and preference is stronger than the patient’s preference. (1) So good! Your Richmond chiropractor is sure that the Richmond treatment plan which likely includes Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will help Richmond pain patients. Johnson Chiropractic has seen many Richmond back pain patients experience great relief!


Adding non-surgical distraction therapy to the care of lumbar disc herniation aids the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks obtained electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. The patients improved. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness reduced. But those patients who also received the distraction therapy found more improvement. Their clinical and radiological evidence when care was over was better. The disc herniation reduction was more obvious in the patients with distraction therapy addition to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Johnson Chiropractic sees it all the time!
