Treatment that delivers better results
The NHS recommends that adults do at least 2 1/2 hours of moderate exercise a week to manage problems with their joints and muscles.
Physical activity can:
- decrease stress
- decrease anxiety
- increase sleep quality
- increase energy levels
- increase the release of pain reducing hormones, such as endorphins
Activities such as brisk walking, dancing and hiking can be great ways to stay active, which do not involve any cost or specialist equipment.
