In brief: See below

Treatment consists of some type of exercise, usually aerobic exercise which is gradually increased in intensity.
Some medications can be helpful but usually work best with other treatments like exercise. Finally, behavioral medicine therapy can be very helpful to get people moving again and learn effective ways to live well despite the presence of pain.
