Why Pain And Injuries Aren’t One In The Same

25 Apr, 2019

Injuries, by nature, tend to be painful. But this doesn’t mean that all pain is rooted in injury. Pain can arise from everyday activities like vacuuming your house or raking leaves in your yard.

However, just because the pain you’re experiencing isn’t from an injury, this doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Pain is our body’s way of letting us know that something is wrong.

That said, if a certain action, like lifting your arm or bending down, continues to result in pain over a long period of time, you may be dealing with an injury that you didn’t know you had.

The longer you take to address a problem, the longer it will take to resolve it. So if you are experiencing recurring pain, it’s time to do something.

When professional athletes experience pain or injuries, they start getting treatment right away. They know they need to be back to 100% as quickly as possible. Though most of us don’t run, tackle, and kick our way to a living, we all still rely on our bodies to carry us through life. We should all prioritize our wellbeing.
