Healthy News from Your Richmond Chiropractor February 2018

Richmond chiropractic at Johnson Chiropractic includes examination, diagnosis, treatment, and listening! 


Richmond back pain patients are central to our Richmond chiropractic practice. Our Richmond chiropractic patients’ thoughts and expectations are influential in the care you get and the clinical result from that Richmond chiropractic care you achieve. Research documents that proponents of mind/body practices (like acupuncture, chiropractic, meditation, massage, yoga in this paper) consider that these practices treat, prevent and are more effective than options like drugs. (1) It’s valuable for all caregivers to know what their patients are thinking, believe and want. Be sure to tell us! What does a Richmond low back pain patient want from a physician? 90% expected an exam, tests, diagnosis, reassurance, advice, clear explanation for their pain, symptom management, and the benefits/risks of treatment. About 50% hoped to be sent to a specialist.  About 60% wanted to share life issues. (2) Does that sound like what you are looking for? Johnson Chiropractic is open to listening, talking, examining, diagnosing and treating you for relief of your Richmond back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST  from the Back Doctors' Podcast series of a patient who expected relief without a back surgery and got it with Cox® Technic.

Richmond chiropractic treatment plan at Johnson Chiropractic may well include chondroitin sulfate! 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate’s reputation for helping prevent and even potentially regenerate disc cartilage increases. Its anti-inflammatory reputation and effect on osteoarthritis do, too. (Johnson Chiropractic appreciates seeing the literature reveal this as Johnson Chiropractic has recommended chondroitin sulfate to our Richmond chiropractic patients for years!) It is being reported as a slow-acting agent in the care of low back pain associated with osteoarthritis. (3) It deters the actions of inflammatory agents linked to conditions like osteoporosis and heart disease. (4, 5) Chondroitin sulfate use in the treatment of low back pain grows. Let us talk about its place in your own Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for Richmond back pain relief.
