'More Movement = Less Pain'

The benefits of taking part in physical activity far "outweigh the risks" for people living with long-term health conditions.

It is believed that one in four people in the UK live with a long-term health condition, and those in this group are twice as likely to be inactive, despite evidence that being active can help manage many conditions and reduce the impact and severity of some symptoms.

However, we know that there are many barriers to becoming active for those living with a long-term health condition – including fears that physical activity may worsen their symptoms, requirements to gain medical clearance prior to increasing activity levels and that all pain is considered bad.

GBA's 'More Movement = Less Pain' webinar's aim is to break down these barriers by clarifying fundamental safety considerations and bridging the gap between evidence, clinical and public health guidelines and people's lived experience.
