Pain and Exercise

What does exercise do for pain?

Exercise is recommended to help prevent the development of pain and as a treatment for those with chronic pain. However, the act of exercising can be extremely painful for some. So why should we do it?  

Professor Kathleen Sluka is joining us on Thursday 18th February to discuss how physical activity can increase and decrease pain, revealing the underlying neurobiology. She will also discuss how we can integrate exercise into the bigger healthcare picture. 

Joining us on our panel are Adam Meakins (The Sports Physio & the Better Clinician Project) and Pete Moore (Paintoolkit). Come and join in the discussion and find out how we can implement exercise for chronic pain and what effects exercise will have on the individual.
