Gentle exercise, performed regularly, can have a big payoff for those living with fibromyalgia.
Being active is essential with fibromyalgia, but it’s important to start low and go slow.
Exercise is pretty powerful stuff. It’s said that a medication that improves our health as much as exercise does would simply be the best ever.
If you have fibromyalgia, however, just moving your body on some days is a big job.
Nonetheless, fibromyalgia expert Kim Dupree Jones, RN, PhD, a professor in the school of nursing at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Portland, encourages those living with the condition to open their minds and hearts to the positive effects of exercise.
