Pain & Tension

Chronic Pain - Restful Position

It is perfectly normal to go through life experiencing some sort of pain or muscle tension.

When it becomes a problem, is when it starts to affect how we live our lives.

Are we avoiding certain movements because it hurts?

Do we push through certain movements and think this is normal?

Moving and exercising should feel good.

It shouldn't cause you pain.  May it cause some muscle soreness up to 48 hours after? Yes, but that is not pain that is conditioning and it shouldn't last more than 48 hours.

Muscle soreness that last for more than 48 hours is overtraining and this can do more harm than good.


When it stops feeling good and you find you are waking up with muscle cramps, have increased muscle tension or your neck, hips, knees, backs and shoulders hurt,

that is when you should ask for help!
