Richmond Exercise Prevents Back Pain

May 07, 2019

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 suggests movement and exercise to our Richmond back pain sufferers as a means to obtain relief from and prevent back pain flare-ups.


From experience and from education in low back pain relief treatments like the Cox® Technic protocols for spine pain relief, Johnson Chiropractic knows that back pain is controlled not cured. A recently published study verifies this line of thought: “For many, low back pain (LBP) is a lifelong condition with symptoms varying over time.” In this study of 130 back pain patients asked about what prompts a back pain flare-up for them, patients mentioned several issues. 84% of them refer to biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, work, medications, and lack of exercise. (1) That is the one Johnson Chiropractic wants to focus on. That’s the one that is in our Richmond back pain patient’s control: exercise. Johnson Chiropractic respects 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 will even demonstrate the proper exercise movements that relieve and block back pain!


Down to the tissues and cells! Researchers describe exercise as a positive stressor for neurological disease improvement. Exercise as a useful stressor that nurtures 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 advantages of exercise extend all the way to the cellular level!
