Cure to back pain lies in exercise, not rest: study
London: A study has confirmed that the key to curing agonising long-term back pain is not by resting but by doing more exercise.
Research showed those who were as active as possible recovered far more quickly and were not left depressed.
Patricia Olaya-Contreras, a researcher of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, randomly advised 109 patients to either “stay active even though it hurts” or “adjust your activity to the pain”.
The results showed that the active group recovered more quickly and did not feel depressed.
“If you don’t keep moving, it’s easy to get locked into a downward spiral,” the Daily Express quoted Olaya-Contreras as saying.
