Chronic Pain & Exercise
Chronic pain is a condition that is described as anyone experiencing pain that persists for longer than 3-6 months. This type of pain can have a grave impact on a person’s overall quality of life. Chronic pain can contribute to poor sleep, anxiety, depression, increase in healthcare costs and can limit your daily activity.
Does exercise help reduce chronic pain?
For anyone suffering with chronic pain you know that you will try anything to help improve your symptoms, and to get your overall quality of life back.
At ISPW we look at all modalities to help reduce a patient’s symptoms. One of those modalities is Exercise. While you might think that rest is what your body may need to reduce pain, specific exercise is actually what can help to relieve the severity of your symptoms.
Physical activity can not only help reduce chronic pain, but it can also have a positive impact on your mental health and physical mobility.
It is important to talk to your doctor about what exercises are recommended specifically for your pain. There is not a one size fits all to each patient, and you can actually cause your symptoms to get worse if you do the wrong physical activity.
Your doctor will likely introduce you to a physical therapist that will help to guide you in this journey.
For specific questions, feel free to reach out to our clinic, or make an appointment with Dr. Goyle to discuss this further.
