January 2019 Richmond Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Richmond walking is a problem, Richmond chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

Richmond WALKING 
Walking is valuable for Richmond living. How often do you think about walking? How often are you grateful for being able to walk? Most Richmond folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a Richmond loved one can not do it or is not able do it as easily as we once did. Chronic non-specific low back pain tends to affect Richmond back pain patients’ motor control while walking. It is suspected that the erector spinae are working intensely in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and more difficult time walking. (1) A new report describes that spinal manipulation combined with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients like those Johnson Chiropractic sees every day who are dealing with lumbar spinal stenosis better than medical care (medications/epidural steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2) Further, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also advances the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic uses one or all these tactics as needed to get you the Richmond back pain relief you want and keep you walking without your giving it a second thought.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Dan Shuman on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about leg pain relief with his chiropractic care incorporating the Cox® Technic System and exercise.

 Johnson Chiropractic encourages exercise for better physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It doesn’t require much to better your health, reduce your back pain, and lessen your encounter with cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A new study states that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise once a week makes a difference. Such exercise improves overall physical health and decreases the rate of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let’s – you and Johnson Chiropractic - discuss how you might fill those 60 minutes with effective, do-able exercises just for you, our Richmond chiropractic patient!
