Most of you know we take a holistic care approach to managing pain here at Austin’s TexStar Chiropractic. We understand and value the link between neuromusculoskeletal health to weight, fitness, diet, and nutritional deficiencies. This is precisely why we invest so much time and energy authoring non-clinical but quality of life enhancing subjects within our chiropractic blog. We have new and uplifting news for you today!

Researchers at the University of California have discovered a very strong link to exercise having a direct effect upon thwarting Alzheimer’s. Here’s the link to the entire story. Browse through our blog and you’ll see numerous exercise-related posts and videos because we know exercise is vital to preventing neck pain, back pain, knee pain, headaches, and a host of other ailments. Today, let’s add dementia to the list of things that exercise might prevent.

The UC researchers conclude exercise positively affects a process called “autophagy”. Autophagy is the body’s process of clearing spent or defective proteins from cells. It is vital to our brain’s health to remove these spent proteins. Defective proteins have long been known contributors to dementia, and ultimately Alzheimer’s. The UC researchers provide uplifting conclusions given that dementia touches all of us by way of family or friends. We highly encourage you read their story— it’s well-worth the read!
