The Benefits of Exercise as a Treatment for Musculoskeletal Pain

Exercise Your Demons

Nonpharmacological interventions are increasingly being prescribed for people with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Current evidence on the role of regular physical activity and exercise in the management of chronic musculoskeletal pain (eg, fibromyalgia, chronic low back pain, and osteoarthritis) will be discussed. We will review specific recommendations pertaining to therapeutic exercise including dose, progression, barriers to exercise adherence, and utilization of the biopsychosocial model of pain in the prescription of exercise.
