Movement and posture
Pain can affect how we move and our confidence in movement, as well as how we hold ourselves. Movement is good medicine for the mind and body. It encourages our naturally produced “feel good” pain relieving Endorphins to be released. (Endorphins are a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system).

Pain and mood
Living alongside persistent pain can affect our mood, our thoughts and our behaviour. For more information about the impact of pain on emotional wellbeing you may find the links below helpful.
Remember: It is important to gain support if you are experiencing difficulties with mood, from friends, family and health care professionals.
Mindfulness is an ancient eastern practice.
Mindfulness means paying attention to the present moment.
We are often so busy worrying about the future or going over what has happened in the past, that we forget to pay attention to what is happening right now, the ‘present moment’.
Mindfulness helps us to notice thoughts, physical sensations, sights, sounds, tastes and smells, lots of things that we might not normally notice. Mindfulness can allow us to notice what we are experiencing, without judgment.
