Help for Richmond Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Johnson Chiropractic

Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control. - Joseph Pilates

No wonder we were often cautioned to stand up straight! Posture matters. Richmond back pain patients know this. Johnson Chiropractic ensures that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Johnson Chiropractic treats poor posture and back pain together. Johnson Chiropractic and our Richmond chiropractic patients experience improvement in one often results in improvement in the other.


Many considerations play a role in how posture and Richmond back pain are related. The whole mechanism of the body truly is at work as Pilates says. Researchers point out that poor posture is reported to change joint position and produce pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research says that even patients with plantar heel pain have more low back pain as well as higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) When one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is recorded to appear on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do , too. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality modifies posture and may produce back pain. Johnson Chiropractic addresses this myriad of issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and sometimes orthotic lifts for our Richmond chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Richmond back pain and postural issues is often manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). Johnson Chiropractic chooses this option as spinal research discloses that it is valuable along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment furthers posture improvement and low pain reduction more notably than low back massage. (6) Three sessions of manipulation improved posture control and reduced pain in a female patient experiencing low back pain and altered balance. (7) Johnson Chiropractic uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Richmond chiropractic care.
