April 6th is tagged as World Day for Physical Activity! We encourage everyone to Be Active Everyday…or as we at Greenfield Physical Therapy like to say…”Join the Movement”!
This same idea is tied into the topic of chronic pain. A spokesperson for the #ChoosePT campaign of the American Physical Therapy Association noted that:
“Movement is often key for many with chronic pain. There is a misconception that if you have pain, you should not move. The opposite is actually true. Movement can diminish pain symptoms. We used to believe that we should stop moving when we are in pain.”
If you have questions or concerns on becoming active or have aches and pains limiting you from being active, call us for a FREE screening!
