Chronic pain treatment FAQs

Can exercise really help manage chronic pain?

Absolutely. Exercise, when tailored to your specific condition, can play a significant role in managing chronic pain. It helps improve flexibility, strength, and overall function while promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

The most appropriate exercises depend on the type and location of your chronic pain. Low-impact activities like walking, swimming, and gentle stretching are often beneficial. Strength training and flexibility exercises can also be included based on your individual needs.

Personalisation is key. We assess your pain condition, medical history, and individual goals to create a customised exercise plan. This ensures that the exercises are not only effective for pain management but also tailored to your preferences and capabilities.


When done correctly, exercise is generally safe and beneficial for chronic pain. However, it’s crucial to start slowly and gradually progress to avoid exacerbating pain. The personalised approach to exercise we take considers your pain threshold and aims to improve your condition over time.

Yes, absolutely. Different types of chronic pain may require specific exercises. For example, individuals with back pain might benefit from core-strengthening exercises, while those with arthritis may focus on joint-friendly activities. The plan is always tailored to your unique needs.

The timeline varies, but many individuals report feeling improvements in pain and function after a few weeks of consistent exercise. It’s important to stay committed and communicate regularly to make any necessary adjustments to the program.

Yes, in many cases. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce the need for pain medications in some individuals. However, any adjustments to medications should be done under the guidance of your healthcare provider.

Mindset is crucial. Stress and anxiety can contribute to the perception of pain. Therefore, we often incorporate stress management techniques and mindfulness practices into the exercise program to address the holistic aspect of chronic pain.
