What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

July 02, 2019

What’s your exercise “thing”? Is “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” more appealing to you? We all like options! We all have preferences. Your Richmond chiropractor is prepared to give you options when it comes to exercise.  Johnson Chiropractic just hopes you exercise. You choose how! When you get to pick, the results are better with regards to satisfaction and pain relief. Johnson Chiropractic's chiropractic care is all about you and your Richmond back pain relief.


Including spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain enhances their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this result from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are doing home exercise all by yourself, you do not benefit from someone caring for you, checking on your progress objectively, confirming that you are healing. Johnson Chiropractic is here for our Richmond chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise guidance and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is tough to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also reduce your quality and enjoyment of life.


Johnson Chiropractic wishes our Richmond back pain patients to do what they want and enjoy what they do. Exercise is essential. Doing a form of exercise that a back pain patient likes raises the chance that he or she will exercise. What do you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the effectiveness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study proposes that either will reduce pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more useful since its exercises are directed at the trunk stabilization muscles. Both ways, having a patient choose an exercise program is the goal to boost patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
