The following are 5 easy exercises that you can do at home. Always check with us before beginning any home-exercise program. For all of the following exercises, position yourself near a counter top or sturdy surface that you can hold on to for support. 1.

5 Tips to Avoid Chronic Pain

1. Know Pain, Know Gain. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that understanding how our pain systems work is an excellent strategy in managing it. The great news is that you don’t need to know a lot!

Our body was built to move, and we need to understand that not all aches or soreness is cause for concern. 3. Spend time with a good PT. If you experience an injury, or develop the onset of pain, seeing a physical therapist (PT) early on can help address and manage your symptoms. PTs are movement experts who can diagnose and treat injuries and help you identify strategies to better manage your pain. The earlier you seek care, the better the chances you have for not developing chronic symptoms. And there’s no reason to wait: you can see a physical therapist without a physician’s referral in all […]
