I know I keep talking about how great exercise is for chronic pain but I literally want to emphasize that any amount of exercise you do is helpful. I worked my way up to this type of workout and found that my pain has decreased. Nope, it’s not a cure by any means, but any symptom relief is good in my book!

Most of my home workouts come from an app called 30-Day Fitness. I’m not affiliated with them at all, and there are a ton of great workout apps out there. Since the gyms are closed because of Covid (where I live anyway), and most people with chronic illness would not feel super safe going to them at this time, coming up with a good home workout routine is important. These are just a few of the exercises I do. Make sure you consult a professional as necessary before trying anything out. Everyone’s abilities and needs are different.
