original abstract†Abstracts here may not perfectly match originals, for a variety of technical and practical reasons. Some abstacts are truncated for my purposes here, if they are particularly long-winded and unhelpful. I occasionally add clarifying notes. And I make some minor corrections.
It is universally accepted within society that activity, i.e. exercise that raises physical stress on the body, is important for overall health. However, the suggestion of exercise to the person living with persistent musculoskeletal pain can be a daunting one. The unpredictability and unpleasantness of musculoskeletal pain following exercise for the person living with long- term pain can be unsettling and finding the right dosage can be challenging for the practising clinician. This article aims to critically appraise the evidence with the intention of providing a clinical rationale for reasoning exercise dosage for people living with persistent musculoskeletal pain.
