Richmond Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors Help Back Pain

July 24, 2018

Healthy lifestyle behaviors are healthy. That makes sense! What healthy lifestyle behaviors are healthy for Richmond back pain and Richmond neck pain patients? Which behaviors help them prevent back pain and neck pain? Johnson Chiropractic would say they are physical activity, low or no alcohol consumption, not or quit smoking and nutritional diet consumption. (Fruits and vegetables are wonderfully health-giving!) Richmond healthy lifestyle behaviors support the lives and spines of our Richmond chiropractic patients and their families.


Back in 2014, a set of researchers suggested that healthy lifestyle behaviors concerning smoking habits, alcohol consumption, leisure physical activity and consumption of fruits and vegetables appeared to reduce the risk of long-term low back pain in women who face low back pain occasionally. Their risk of developing long term troubling low back pain was cut by 35% if just one healthy lifestyle behavior was in place and by 52% if all 4 healthy lifestyle behaviors were in place. Researchers therefore suggested that recommending healthy lifestyle behaviors would improve the outlook of women’s back pain. (1) Male and female low back pain patients who are obese or overweight require more than simply a phone call or advice about adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors to remedy their back pain. (2) That’s where Johnson Chiropractic comes in. Johnson Chiropractic offers our Richmond chiropractic patients the opportunity to talk about and add healthy lifestyle behaviors to their lives to prevent Richmond back pain and Richmond neck pain as well as shorten its duration whenever possible.


Johnson Chiropractic understands that Richmond low back pain and neck pain patients want to get rid of their pain and their risk of future pain. What aids these Richmond back pain and neck pain patients with this goal? Healthy lifestyle choices. Healthy lifestyle behaviors influence our overall health. In reviewing just how these behaviors affect the risk of low back pain and neck pain, researchers discovered that healthy behaviors help men with their long-term low back pain risk and women with their long-standing neck pain risk. (3) Both Richmond men and women who want to get rid of back pain and neck pain and control back pain’s future occurrence benefit from Richmond healthy lifestyle behaviors. Johnson Chiropractic is here to help!
