Richmond Back Pain Prevention with Exercise

What is the first thing you do when you’re in pain? Stop moving. Most Richmond back pain patients stop, too. That makes sense; however, moving is helpful for healing.

The body should move to heal and to firm the spine and to ease the return of back pain. Johnson Chiropractic usually promotes movement and exercise to Richmond back pain sufferers to lessen their Richmond back pain.


Exercise types from walking to running, from light weight to heavy weight, from high intensity to yoga and Pilates promote healthier lives and stronger spines. One study explains the benefits of Pilates, a gentler exercise approach that is quite valuable for back pain relief. Likely owing to its core muscle activation and lumbopelvic rhythm improvement, Pilates functioned better than extension-based exercises for reducing pain and improving range of motion and physical disability. (1) Additionally, using active interferential current therapy before Pilates decreased pain quicker than a placebo current: 30% reduction in one session, 50% in two, 100% in three. That’s statistically significant! (2) Johnson Chiropractic often blends therapies and exercise options to boost clinical relief for Richmond back pain patients just like this!


Interestingly, one problem that sets women up for more frequent back pain episodes is a lack of vigorous physical activity. Obesity and depression are also influential matters.
