Exercising while experiencing pain may seem counter-intuitive. However, people with chronic pain can benefit from certain forms of exercise. Typically, helps exercises are those that stretch and gently strengthen muscles in order to relieve pressure contributing to the ongoing pain.
Examples of pain-reducing exercises include:
1. Decompression Poses
Much of the pressure on the spine and limbs can be relieved by decompression. Also known as relaxed stretches or poses, decompression begins with the placement of a rolled up towel or foam roller. The pad-like object should be used laying down.
