Exercise For Pain Sure Helped Me Today!
I was grumpy all morning. I’d planned a workout, early, but life happened instead. Mid-afternoon, still grumpy, due to stinging pain over dermatomes T2-T5 (see image), I climbed on the ol’ CompuTrainer. Forty-minutes later, spinning between 80-200 watts, with pickups and single leg drills, I felt great.
Exercise for pain works.
I felt so much better. Immediately!
The surgery, even though it was through a scope (plus one unavoidable collapsed lung), did upset some spinal sensory nerves, clearly.
The pattern of pain was related to dermatomes T2-T5 (I’m better with dog, horse, sheep and cow anatomy, if I’m in error – that’s my excuse, anyway).
If you’re in pain, give exercise a try, if you can!
