On May 1, The American College of Sports Medicine put out a press release titled “Rx for Health: A Daily Dose of Exercise!
May is Exercise is Medicine® Month”. After clicking the link, you will see loads of info plus be able to download the EIM Month toolkit to help organize exercise initiatives in your community.
We wish we had gotten word of it sooner, but that’s ok as the message has no time limit!
According to the release:
“National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, communities throughout the U.S. will hold activities that recognize that physical activity and exercise – shown to help prevent and treat more than 40 chronic diseases – should be part of everyone’s health care plan.”
Take a look over the FibroDaily site and you will find plenty of exercise routines that can be done online for free. We recommend that you speak to your doctor before starting anything new, especially if you haven’t been working out. But still, give it a go. Exercise offers beneficial gains to those with Fibromyalgia, including maintaining muscle tone and increasing flexibility. Exercise has also been shown in clinical studies to reduce chronic pain.
