Exercise takes the edge off of chronic pain

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic say that when you are in pain, exercise is probably the last thing on your mind. But it could be more important than you think.

Regular exercise is a versatile weapon in the fight against chronic pain. It may seem difficult to start, but your body will thank you, say the Mayo people. What exercise can do:

* It increases endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relievers.

* Exercise builds strength, which takes the load off bones and cartilage.

* It increases flexibility when you exercise. That means joints are able to move through their full range of motion and are less likely to ache or be painful.

* It increases your energy level and gives you the strength to cope with life and with pain.

* It helps you maintain a healthy weight and contributes to better sleep.

* It enhances your mood and gives a sense of well-being. You look better and have the confidence to continue.

* Exercise protects the heart.
