Physical Inactivity Leads to Chronic Pain

Here's one more reason to exercise: #Physical inactivity contributes to #chronic #musculo-skeletal #pain, which affects the muscles, #ligaments, #tendons and #bones. People with chronic conditions such as #back pain, #arthritis, or #neck pain #suffer daily through pain, #fatigue, and even #depression, and more people are falling #victim every day. In fact, some experts have characterized the increasing prevalence of #musculoskeletal #conditions as an #epidemic.

According to a recent, a connection exists between physical inactivity and chronic musculoskeletal complaints. The researchers found, "In this large-scale #population-based study, physical #exercise was associated with lower prevalence of chronic MSCs, in particular chronic widespread MSCs [>15 days during the last month]. Furthermore, consistent medium activity level [120-179 min./week] was associated with [a] more than 50% lower prevalence of chronic widespread MSCs.".

There you go - the latest in an ever-growing list of reasons to make exercise a part of your weekly routine. And remember, a consistent, balanced fitness program of #cardio, muscle #strengthening and stretching will do more than help in the prevention of chronic pain; it could also help prevent other serious conditions such as #heart #disease and #hypertension.
