Alleviating Pain

Alleviating pain

If you’re someone who experiences regular discomfort in your joints or muscles, you know just how frustrating and limiting it can be. Fortunately, strength training with a personal trainer can make a significant difference in managing chronic pain.

Studies have shown that strength training can reduce pain levels and increase quality of life in individuals with chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain. With the guidance of a knowledgeable personal trainer, you can create a customized strength training program that addresses your specific needs and goals.

We will work closely with you to understand your unique situation and develop a program that will help alleviate your chronic aches and pains. We believe that strength training should never be a one-size-fits-all approach, and we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor workouts to meet the individual needs of each of our clients.

At Saanich Strength Society, we first will take the time to assess your current level of fitness, your range of motion, and any areas of discomfort you may be experiencing. From there, we will develop a program together that will help you improve your overall strength and flexibility, which can lead to a reduction in chronic pain over time.

Improved Joint Stability

Strengthening the muscles surrounding a joint can help to improve its stability and support. This can be particularly helpful for individuals experiencing joint pain due to conditions such as arthritis or injury.


Increased Range of Motion

As you begin to strengthen your muscles, you may find that your range of motion improves. This increased mobility can help to alleviate pain and discomfort in areas such as the back, hips, and shoulders.


Better Body Alignment

Strength training can help to improve your posture and alignment, which can reduce the strain on your joints and muscles. This can be particularly helpful for individuals experiencing chronic pain in the neck, back, or hips.


Reduced Inflammation

Exercise has been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help to reduce pain and inflammation in the body. Regular strength training can help to reduce chronic inflammation, which can be beneficial for individuals experiencing conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia.
