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. 😆

Hi Ben and team. Thank you for the professional exercise advice over the last few years. Building core strength has eliminated my chronic back pain and improved my endurance and flexibility. The extra muscle assures my single figure golf handicap. The whole family are now Tailored Health converts. Well done.

You’ll always be met with a genuine smile by the staff of Tailored Health! They are all so passionate about helping people through personalised “tailored” exercise physiology programs. I’ve been a client for 6+ years and would not hesitate to recommend their services. They help me manage the symptoms of my chronic health condition so that I don’t just have to survive, but I can thrive in my work, life and family. They consistently cheer on their clients to make the most of their abilities and achieve their health goals. They’re very family friendly and during my time as a client I’ve often had to bring my kids to an appointment with me and I have never felt that to be an issue - in fact the kids get just as much out of those sessions as me, if not more!
