Reducing Pain with Exercise

Why Exercise?

Exercise lowers pain if done carefully. Exercise causes your brain to generate pain killers naturally. These are called endorphins.


How to Exercise:

  • The exercise you do must not hurt you, especially your areas of pain.
  • Be gentle and ‘check-in’ with your body to see if the exercise leaves you feeling better or if it is making your pain worse.
  • Stop any exercises that increase your pain level.

Developing the Habit

Reaping the Rewards

With time and practice, you can develop your unique exercise program that allows you to

  • build up your endorphins
  • Increase your strength and general good health
  • Sustain a positive mood and overall state of happiness
