Healthy Choices Linked to Reduced Pain for People with Multiple Sclerosis

People with MS who exercise experience pain less often

The research team’s analysis also revealed that people with MS who were involved in regular exercise were less prone to experiencing pain. “As you might imagine, people are less likely to exercise if they are in pain. But on the other hand, exercise has been shown many times over to be beneficial in terms of pain symptoms. Increased physical activity can increase pain threshold and tolerance, and so reduce the experience of pain,” said Marck.
