Many people with chronic pain believe that physical activity should be avoided because it could damage their muscles and joints and actually worsen their pain.
This is a common misconception.
To the contrary, exercise can actually help reduce pain.
During physical activity your body releases chemicals called endorphins and enkephalins that block pain signals from reaching your brain.
These chemicals have also been shown to alleviate anxiety and depression, conditions than make pain more difficulty to control.
Exercise has been proven to strengthening muscles and ligaments which can reduce stress on painful joints.
