Increasing muscle strength, flexibility and joint stability isn’t just a side effect of physical exercise; it’s also a form of pain management available for those who suffer from chronic pain conditions. Regular therapeutic exercise helps you maintain the ability to move comfortably rather than being disabled by pain.
ICWA can help you create a plan for pain management that will combine supervised activity and lifestyle changes to let you regain the quality of life you want.
Pain Management Through Physical Activity
As part of a combination approach to managing chronic pain, physical exercise helps the body with handling inflammation, stiffness and soreness as well as encouraging the body to produce natural, pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins. These literally reduce your perceptions of pain and trigger a positive mood shift, similar to the effect of morphine.
Chronic pain management often involves:
- Joint manipulation
- Manual therapy of soft tissue
- Movement therapy
- Specific exercise
At ICWA, we can address every aspect of your rehabilitative exercise pain management. With individually designed plans to suit every patient, we’re able to help you take control of your quality of life and regain the physical comfort and ability you had.
