Pain Myth Busted: Rest is Not Your Secret Weapon

Did You Know...

You've probably heard that if you're dealing with chronic pain, a good old rest can keep things from getting worse. And you know, there's a bit of truth to that...

But here's the kicker: when it comes to chronic pain, too much couch time could actually have the opposite effect. Think about it - have you ever noticed how stiff you feel when you've been inactive for a while? Imagine that on a bigger scale.

Here's the good news: top-notch health organizations are now giving the green light to movement-based treatments, like the ones we provide. They're seeing that helping your body stay in motion can be a great approach to managing pain.
