Targeted exercises decrease pain
A new study investigates “lumbo-sacral stabilization training” exercises. They decrease pain in a manner similar to pain pills. When performed regularly, they decreased pain and sensitivity to heat and pressure, which were used as measures of spontaneous and triggered discomfort. So, as we frequently tell our patients, exercises is just like a pain pill. But without negative side-effects, and with many added advantages (mobility, strength, stamina, mood, happiness).
We are developing a new set of exercises along this particular profile. Until then, stay warm and active!
