Richmond Exercise Prevents Back Pain

What triggers a back pain episode? A variety of factors. What’s a trigger that Richmond back pain sufferers can control? Not exercising! Johnson Chiropractic promotes movement and exercise to our Richmond back pain sufferers as a means to find relief from and prevent back pain bouts.


From experience and from education in low back pain relief treatments such as the Cox® Technic protocols for spine pain relief, Johnson Chiropractic is aware that back pain is controlled not cured. A newly published study substantiates this line of thought: “For many, low back pain (LBP) is a lifelong condition with symptoms varying over time.” In this survey of 130 back pain patients asked about what sets off a back pain flare-up for them, patients reported several concerns. 84% of them refer to biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, job, medications, and lack of exercise. (1) That’s the one Johnson Chiropractic wants to target. That’s the one that is within our Richmond back pain patient’s control: exercise. Johnson Chiropractic recognizes our chiropractic patients’ concerns that movement may cause pain and encourages safe, gentle movement and exercise to relieve back pain and its occurrence rate. We’ll even demonstrate the proper exercise movements that ease and block back pain!


Down to the tissues and cells! Researchers label exercise as a positive stressor for neurological disease improvement. Exercise as a beneficial stressor that fosters autophagy – the body’s own means of recycling damaged cells - to increase neurological function, maintain tissue integrity, and activate new adaptive signal pathways. (2) The benefits of exercise reach the cellular level!
