CBD Before Workout or Therapy
Can CBD aid in physical therapy?
Physical therapy aims to reduce pain and manage symptoms of certain conditions, such as a sports injury or physical rehabilitation following surgery.
While there is not yet much evidence on whether CBD improves physical therapy’s effectiveness, there is evidence that it can reduce pain and inflammation and, perhaps, promote wound healing. According to a 2018 article in Frontiers in Pharmacology Trusted Source, CBD may improve pain, inflammation, seizures, and anxiety.
As far as using CBD before physical therapy or workout, it can be beneficial. As more research and testing is ongoing, validation of CBD’s impact as a pre-workout and pre-physical therapy routine is promising. The best practice is to try out a CBD topical before therapy. Pay attention to your body and how it reacts the exercises with your therapist. It is recommended that you talk to your physical therapist and your doctor before trying this approach.
