Johnson Chiropractics October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



Richmond knee pain is a pain that Johnson Chiropractic sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical options are plentiful while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is supplying quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic daily for Richmond back pain and neck pain relief - were adapted for application with knee pain. They demonstrated success in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study reported any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Johnson Chiropractic’s Richmond chiropractic care! Richmond knee pain sufferers are invited to feel this gentle, relieving Richmond knee pain treatment!


Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Richmond older folks benefit even more. A new article reports that people with chronic low back pain usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Johnson Chiropractic concurs as these two are seen frequently in this Richmond chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Johnson Chiropractic will share some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do in the convenience of your own home alongside the Richmond chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to experience such relief yourself.
