exercise is medicine
This article provides more evidence that exercise is medicine! For individuals suffering from Osteoarthritis, Tylenol may be able to decrease pain, but for those suffering from low back pain it will probably not help.
For either condition, exercise is the mainstay of treatment. Exercise helps improve the stability of joints by contracting the muscles that surround it. It can help act as a pump to move joint fluid around and it can decrease the pain response.
Whenever possible, move more. Movement is not only the key to staying young and feeling healthy, but it is also great for pain control.
