Most people with chronic pain want to rest, and who can blame them? However, exercise is one of the best things you can do for chronic pain, provided it's done properly. Dr. Nicholas A. DiNubile, in a report to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, said moderate activity improves the lives of those with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain and osteoporosis. Some of the best forms of exercise are swimming, walking and bicycling. Weight-bearing activity is also beneficial. However, anyone with chronic pain or joint problems should avoid activities that are stressful to joints and the back, such as running, jogging and skiing. The best place to start is at your doctor's or chiropractor's office. These professionals can help make decisions about the amount and type of activity that is right for you.
