Scheduled physical activity every day can improve neuropathy and other chronic pain.
One of the things we find in our practices is that patients who tend to keep tight schedules do extremely well managing and ultimately defeating chronic pain.
More specifically when we work with these patients even recovering from neuropathy, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis and yes even more serious illnesses, we find there is scheduled physical activity every day.
In fact, it may be one the most challenging things you do. But it could also be one of the most rewarding.
The reason for this is our bodies work on set schedules.
Did you know that even such things like body temperature and alertness, etc. all run on internal schedules and cycles?
This also helps explain why those who schedule things such as meals, physical activity, self-treatment with your home-care and clinic care, do far better!
Otherwise, especially in this modern world the tendency is to drift aimlessly. And yes, even things such as our computers, social groups, and social media can wind up being distractions using a vast majority of our time.
Unfortunately, this tends to happen more not less as we get older, retire, become disabled or move away from daily structure.
The bottom line is it is not healthy.
So here’s where I recommend you begin today. Start by outlining what an ideal date looks like for you.
What time do you get up? What do you have for breakfast that makes you feel the best?
Most of our neuropathy and chronic pain patients find that adhering to the NeuropathyDR diet and eating schedule goes along way towards keeping them productive.
This is because the NeuropathyDR diet will allow you to maintain more even blood sugars and thus your energy level and mental alertness.
Next, regardless of your fitness or illness level, some type of scheduled physical activity is critical.
