Low impact aerobic exercises can help improve cardiovascular health, decrease back and joint stiffness, and strengthen core muscles that help the spine balance weight. Mobility enhancing aerobics are important for maintaining quality of life. Aerobic exercises can also help prevent and/or reduce chronic pain.

A person in chronic pain is most likely thinking that exercise may make their symptoms worse. However, now, experts are prescribing regular exercise routines as a standard practice for effective pain management.

Aerobic exercise causes the body to release endorphins, natural chemicals in the body that prevent pain signals from being transmitted to the brain. With stronger muscles, less force is being transferred to bones and cartilage which will ease pain on weightbearing joints.
