Physical exercise reduces muscle & joint pain

As little as 2 minutes of daily progressive resistance training for 10 weeks results in clinically relevant reductions of pain and tenderness in healthy adults with frequent neck/shoulder symptoms. Physical inactivity and high BMI are associated with an increased risk of chronic pain in the low back and neck/shoulders in the general adult population.
