Exercising with pain

When you’re in pain, it can be hard to know what to do for the best, particularly when it comes to exercise. Many people are afraid of doing more damage, while some try to ignore the problem and carry on as normal.

Pain isn’t necessarily a reason to stop exercising altogether. In fact, we know that exercise can, in many situations, help to reduce pain, but it may also be a sign you need to modify your activities.

The resources in this section are designed to help you understand how and why exercise can help your pain and to know when it’s enough or too much.
