McHenry Exercise Prevents Back Pain

What triggers a back pain episode? A variety of things. What’s one that McHenry back pain sufferers can control? Whether they exercise or not! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic encourages movement and exercise to our McHenry back pain sufferers as a way to gain relief from and prevent back pain episodes.


From experience and from education in low back pain relief treatments such as the Cox® Technic protocols for spine pain relief, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows that back pain is controlled not cured. A recently published study confirms 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 mentioned several issues. 84% of them describe biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, job, prescriptions, and lack of exercise. (1) That’s the one OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wants to target. That is the one that is within our McHenry back pain patient’s control: exercise. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic regards our chiropractic patients’ concerns that movement may hurt and encourages safe, gentle movement and exercise to improve back pain and its incidence rate. We will even show you how to do the proper exercise movements that ease and prevent back pain!


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