Why we experience pain
Pain DOES NOT equal damage 🤕
Not always and not uniformly.
In this video our Exercise Physiologist Kelly breaks down this complex topic.
👉🏻 just because you have pain doesn’t mean your body is damaged/broken
👉🏻 the longer we experience pain the more risk for tissue, receptor and CNS sensitivity
👉🏻 we can reduce pain through graded movement within your pain thresholds
💥 the body and brain can change - pain isn’t a life sentence

The overflowing cup
It helps to think of why we get CHRONIC PAIN flare ups like an overflowing cup 🥛
Lots of negative STRESSORS add to the cup.
There’s physical stress like sitting too much, just as there are psychological stress like being out of work.
When we have too much going on the cup overflows and we FEEL PAIN.
When looking to treat chronic pain try to identify what fills up your cup and what you can do to off load some of it.
TREATMENT may consist of exercise, general physical activity, meditation, good nutrition, massage/chiro/physio, improving sleep, hobbies and socialising.
All these things (and lots more) can have a positive impact on reducing your overflowing cup and getting you out of pain.
