Imagine living your life with ongoing pain due to an injury or medical illness. Perhaps you have done so in the past, or have a family member or friend who lives with daily pain. The consequences can be debilitating, impacting your ability to stay fit and healthy, and impacting your quality of life.
Yet many Australians live with pain in their body every day. It is a big issue in Australia, with approximately 3.2 million adults currently living with chronic pain. This equates to one in five adults and one in three adults over the age of 65 years experiencing chronic pain. Furthermore, chronic pain is not exclusive to adults, with 25-35% of Australian children and adolescents experiencing chronic pain, particularly young females.
Inspire Fitness for Wellbeing is supporting National Pain Week, which will take place from July 22nd-28th. The aim of National Pain Week is to de-stigmatise pain, and reduce the isolation and suffering of people living with pain.
At Inspire Fitness, we have recently developed a Pain Management service under the supervision of Accredited Exercise Physiologist Nicole Marlow. The aim of this Exercise Physiology service is to empower members of the community who are living with chronic pain, so that they can manage their condition effectively.
Throughout National Pain Week, we will be releasing a series of blog articles to help educate the community on how exercise can be used as a treatment for such debilitating conditions.
For more information, contact Inspire Fitness for Wellbeing today on (03) 9857 3007 to learn more how we can assist you in managing your pain condition.
