Exercise Helps Decrease Pain

Exercise is indispensable for all pain patients. It has a variety of effects on your body that helps block pain.

How does Exercise decrease pain?

  1. Exercise boosts the output of endorphins. Endorphins are substances your body produces to fight pain.
  2. Exercise increases the brain's supply of serotonin. Serotonin is a very important substance. Serotonin is a substance that aids the flexibility of blood vessels. This is important because when blood vessels are flexible, they are less likely to cause painful irritation. Serotonin also improves your mood. (When you are in a good mood, pain feels better than when you are in a bad mood). Serotonin also fights pain in the brain. It fights pain by blocking the brain's perception of pain. Serotonin also helps regulate your sleep cycles. If you are in pain, it is important to get enough sleep so your body can properly combat the pain.
  3. Exercise helps stabilize levels of estrogen. Estrogen is a sex hormone that can interfere with serotonin.

If you are interested in the benefits of exercise and how exercise can reduce your pain, consult your doctor about setting up an exercise program that is conducive to your condition.
