West Des Moines Exercise Prevents Back Pain

What triggers a back pain episode? Lots of different factors. What’s a trigger that West Des Moines back pain sufferers can control? Whether they exercise or not! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa encourages movement and exercise to our West Des Moines back pain sufferers as a way to get 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, Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 study of 130 back pain patients asked about what triggers a back pain flare-up for them, patients mentioned a number of issues. 84% of them describe biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, job, medications, and lack of exercise. (1) That is the one Executive Chiropractic of Iowa wants to address. That’s the one that is inside our West Des Moines back pain patient’s control: exercise. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa respects our chiropractic patients’ concerns that movement may cause pain and encourages safe, gentle movement and exercise to improve back pain and its occurrence rate. We will even demonstrate 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 valuable stressor that nurtures autophagy – the body’s own method of recycling damaged cells - to increase neurological function, maintain tissue integrity, and stimulate new adaptive signal pathways. (2) The benefits of exercise reach the cellular level!
