#ManageWithMovement on Instagram is a Yoga Challenge that helps to bring awareness to the public about the benefits and role of Physical Therapy in managing pain as well as various facts about opioid use.
“Specifically in the US in 2012, 259 million prescriptions were written for opioid pain medication. Stats show that as many as 1 in 4 people who receive these prescriptions long-term for non-cancer pain in primary care settings struggles with addiction.
We want to educate and talk about how PT, exercise (yoga, running, weightlifting), and holistic approaches to help safely manage pain amidst the environment of the opioid epidemic can be explored.”
Be sure to follow along and check out info from our first yoga challenge #ManageWithMovement as well as our second #ManageWithMovement2 for all the facts!
