Am I just making everything worse?

There is a real battle when in pain. It grabs your attention and makes you wonder “Is this pain new? Does it mean I have done some tissue damage? Should I actually be resting?”

All we want is to make the pain go away as fast as possible but how do I do that if I don’t really understand what is going on?

Or sometimes the pain comes on gradually and you just start to notice it every now and then.

Or maybe the pain starts on one side of your body and then completely changes to the other side of your body.

Sounds confusing right?🤯🤯🤯

Here’s the answer. 🧐

Acute pain refers to when you first have an injury or the tissue tolerance (muscle, bone or joint) has been exceeded and has been pushed too far, resulting in an injury and acute pain. This type of tissue injury will often require rest for example a broken bone. Chronic pain however, 9 times out of 10 will not require rest and moving is going to be your best medicine.

How do you work out which category you fit in?

Pain for over 3 months is classed as chronic pain but it is important to seek medical advice to check for the bad stuff first. Once cleared, moving your body will get you back to life and feeling a lot better.😊

This is easier said than done. Guidance and support can be very helpful in making this journey as smooth and quick as possible. Don’t wait, ask for help and you will not be disappointed. 😆

    5 star review  I started working with Ben as my exercise physiologist even before he started Tailored Health. He has always been caring and understanding my problems and has always worked towards increasing my strength. He has a great team and Claire has done enormous job on my body, looking after all my pain and I feel so much better than before. Recently Phil has joined the team and he is great too! Thank you for looking after me and being so kind and professional.
