Richmond Chiropractics Time is Now

Johnson Chiropractic is Richmond’s chiropractic care hub and is excited to be a part of chiropractic as its benefits for back pain relief grow in recognition. 

The GLOBAL Role of Chiropractic for Back Pain

Now is the time for chiropractic! Johnson Chiropractic is excited to offer chiropractic services in Richmond and be a part of this time in healthcare.  Lancet, one of the leading medical journals, presented a number of pieces on the disappointing state that healthcare systems around the globe are managing low back pain. Back pain is a huge issue universally and getting worse. And chiropractic is “perfectly placed to be a major player in providing a part of the solution to the global challenge of low back” as long as its providers follow guidelines (like your chiropractor strives to do!) to not order too many x-rays, follow evidence-based care clinical practice guidelines, and keep abreast of the most recent research (and even taking part in research when possible!). Chiropractic is known for its reputation in caring for back pain. A place for it needs to be made in mainstream healthcare to take care of more back pain and neck pain sufferers non-pharmacologically and non-surgically. (1) The World Federation of Chiropractic is developing toolkits for chiropractors to participate more with public health communities and be of greater benefit to patients and communities within the health system as respected partners for their health and well-being. (2) Your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic appreciates this support and foreshight from a world chiropractic organization as that is just what this Richmond chiropractic practice of Johnson Chiropractic strives to do here in Richmond.

Check out this PODCAST with Dr. Christophe Dean on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how he integrates Cox® Technic into his Richmond patient care to help ease back pain.

Johnson Chiropractic offers the best of chiropractic care options to ease Richmond back pain sufferers’ pain, sometimes with back belts. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Wear a Back Support

Low back pain patients at Johnson Chiropractic may find value in wearing a lumbar back belt. New research shows that a lumbar support belt doesn’t inevitably cause muscle weakness but rather improves walking distance ability for spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication, reduces pain and fear of pain, reduces use of pain medications, and increases muscle strength, flexibility, and activities of daily living. (3-10) All good! Your chiropractor cautiously considers when and if to recommend back braces for each individual Richmond back pain patient as he or she gets better with Richmond chiropractic care, knowing the benefits back braces may give along the way.
