Your active lifestyle may be causing you to push yourself too far on occasion. Pain does not always bring about progress when you are working out. Nor is there progress when you injure yourself performing simple household chores. Spine and Sport Medicine’s multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals want to help you with injury control.
Unrecognized harmful pain during any type of physical assertion can:
- Be the primary cause of an injury
- Complicate and prolong an existing injury
- Lead to future a future injury
If you continue to injure yourself while you are working out or being physical in any activity, you are not able to differentiate between good pains and bad pains.
- Hurt from the body’s adaptation to Acceptable Exertion = a good pain
- Hurt from the body’s rejection to Over Exertion = a bad pain
brian_kessler – medical director of spine_and_sports_medicine – has sound advice on how you can know the difference between good and bad pains in the future.
A Good Pain
A good pain is one signaling the body’s adaptation to a tolerable level of physical exertion. Good pains are known as the comeback aches – those aches that are predictable when you’re trying to get back into your normal routine after taking time off.
Another good pain is one signaling you are pushing your body to a new level of performance. You are taking it up a notch, but not showing off beyond your ability.
A Bad Pain
A bad pain is one you’ve never felt before when exerting physical energy. It could be a muscular failure or an unusual experience of localized pain – before, during, or after a physical activity.
Red flags that you are continuing to injure yourself.
- Sudden pains
- Sharp pains
- Stabbing pains
- Traumatic pains
