 “My chiropractor gets it. My Richmond chiropractor understands how this back pain and sciatica have disturbed my life. My Richmond chiropractor is helping  relieve the back pain and leg pain, so I can get back to my life.” Johnson Chiropractic listens to this constantly! Richmond back pain and leg pain patients of all ages  and particularly our older Richmond back pain patients who have seen many other doctors without relief. Johnson Chiropractic helps ease back pain and leg pain gently and effectively with Cox Technic.


Experiencing back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is different than – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain or sciatica as a younger person. There is a range of types of sciatica patients – those who have mild leg pain to those with high pain, disability and timeframe of being affected by it. Researchers discovered that most improvement for pain and disability happened in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients described recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica bothers about 25% of us. Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is worse than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may accompany the leg pain. The typical care possibilities are pain medications of all sorts from NSAIDS to opioids without much proof for their use. Additionally, most clinical trials for these meds for managing the pain of sciatica actually exclude older people. (2) Johnson Chiropractic implements a non-drug option for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research evidence to support its utilization and documentation of its efficacy for that life-changing experience of back and sciatic pain.


Patients explain to researchers that “It has changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that persists beyond 3 months. Specifically, a recent article clarifies that back pain sufferers say that it harms their sense of self, makes them feel like they are trapped in a body that just won’t work anymore, complicates family relationships, keeps them working with pain, and makes them feel socially and recreationally repressed. (3) Johnson Chiropractic has witnessed this in its years of taking care of Richmond back pain. Back pain upsets life. Johnson Chiropractic presents hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, Johnson Chiropractic hears from Richmond back pain patients that even 50% relief would be really very gratifying, permitting them to get back to their lifestyle.
