Georgetown Exercise Prevents Back Pain

May 07, 2019

What triggers a back pain episode? Lots of different things. What is a trigger that Georgetown back pain sufferers can control? Whether they exercise or not! Dr. Butwell encourages movement and exercise to our Georgetown back pain sufferers as a means to get 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, Dr. Butwell is aware that back pain is controlled not cured. A newly 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 causes a back pain flare-up for them, patients noted a number of issues. 84% of them describe biomedical triggers like movement activity, static postures, overdoing something, work, prescriptions, and lack of exercise. (1) That is the one Dr. Butwell wants to focus on. That is the one that is inside our Georgetown back pain patient’s control: exercise. Dr. Butwell respects our chiropractic patients’ concerns that movement may cause pain and promotes safe, gentle movement and exercise to improve back pain and its incidence rate. We will even demonstrate the proper exercise movements that relieve and block back pain!


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