Exercise ineffective as a short-term pain killer for chronic pain patients

_"When healthy people start to exercise, the brain activates powerful descending analgesic systems (pain inhibitory actions). This leads to increased pain thresholds during exercise, making it less likely that we will feel pain during, or immediately following, exercise.  However, brain-orchestrated analgesia or pain inhibition is often impaired in people with chronic pain and central sensitization. This applies to exercise-induced activation of brain-orchestrated analgesia in chronic pain patients as well. Aerobic exercises like bicycling do not activate brain-orchestrated analgesia in patients with fibromyalgia, chronic whiplash associated disorders, or chronic fatigue syndrome. Remarkably, chronic low back pain patients are able to activate their brain-orchestrated analgesic systems normally during exercise."_
