Sitka Exercise Prevents Back Pain

What triggers a back pain episode? Lots of different factors. What’s a trigger that Sitka back pain sufferers can control? Not exercising! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka suggests movement and exercise to our Sitka back pain sufferers as a means to gain relief from and prevent back pain flare-ups.


From experience and from education in low back pain relief treatments such as the Cox® Technic protocols for spine pain relief, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows that back pain is controlled not cured. A newly 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 questioned about what prompts a back pain flare-up for them, patients stated a number of topics. 84% of them refer to biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, job, prescriptions, and lack of exercise. (1) That’s the one Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to focus on. That’s the one that is within our Sitka back pain patient’s control: exercise. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka respects our chiropractic patients’ concerns that movement may cause pain and promotes safe, gentle movement and exercise to relieve back pain and its occurrence rate. We’ll even show you how to do the proper exercise movements that ease and prevent back pain!


As far as the tissues and cells! Researchers describe exercise as a positive stressor for neurological disease improvement. Exercise as a useful stressor that fosters autophagy – the body’s own way of recycling damaged cells - to improve neurological function, maintain tissue integrity, and activate new adaptive signal pathways. (2) The benefits of exercise extend all the way to the cellular level!
