Healthy News December 2018: Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic first may lessen the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Richmond chiropractic patients know that visiting their chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain gets better. Richmond chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Johnson Chiropractic. A benefit Richmond chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize since they are chiropractic patients already is that seeing a chiropractor reduces the odds of back surgery. A recent report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who visited a surgeon|first consulted a surgeon first underwent surgery while only 1.5% of those who consulted a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment works wonders on the autonomic nervous system. This tie between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is recorded particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Richmond back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is acceptable!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and discovered relief with his chiropractic care implementing the Cox® Technic System.

Johnson Chiropractic wishes joy for all our Richmond back pain patients to boost their back pain and their outlook on life.

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoying the Holiday [Joy|Cheer]33] Helps the Back Pain Sufferer and the Richmond Back Pain!

In developed countries, two of the most familiar reasons to see a doctor were for depression/anxiety and back pain. (3) Seeing these two issues together is not uncommon at Johnson Chiropractic. Back pain sufferers have a tendency to deal with depression. 20.2% of back pain patients with spondylosis and disc conditions among others deal with depression and use more money on health care for their conditions. (4) This connection is even stronger for chronic low back pain sufferers. (5) So this holiday season, Johnson Chiropractic’s wish for Richmond back pain sufferers is that they experience the joy and cheer around them. It just may improve their back pain, too! That is the objective of Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic.
