Exercising can be challenging when you are suffering from all-over body pain and crippling fatigue, but research has shown that exercise can be of tremendous benefit to individuals suffering from fibromyalgia.
You should begin exercising with small and realistic goals in mind. Setting lofty goals may be admirable, but failure to reach your goals may make you feel as if you have failed. Decide on an exercise program that you know you will enjoy- this will help you to stick to your plan. Enlist the advice of your physician and make sure you are cleared to exercise.
There are numerous types of exercise that may be beneficial to those suffering from fibromyalgia. It is important to begin an exercise program slowly, building up strength and endurance. Choosing a form of exercise that is enjoyable is crucial to continuation of an exercise program. The benefits of exercise in fibromyalgia cannot be underestimated and should be part of a comprehensive treatment program targeting the symptoms experienced.
