Physically active individuals have a higher pain tolerance than sedentary ones, according to a new study.
Participants who were consistently active or increased their activity over time displayed a higher overall level of pain tolerance.
Although the analysis did not demonstrate a statistically significant change in pain tolerance over time due to increased activity, it indicates that physical activity could potentially mitigate chronic pain.
Further research is required to confirm a cause-and-effect relationship and explore potential therapeutic applications.
