Pain can alter movement…

While pain lets us know that damage has occurred on some level, it can be difficult to completely rest the body for optimal healing to occur.  When we continue to move through pain, our brain coordinates adaptive motor patterns that reduces the stress on the injured structures. This compensation can of course be helpful in the short term to reduce further injury and minimize pain, the longer this altered pattern persists, the more likely the body will maintain these new patterns.

Compensation patterns can put sub-optimal loads on connective tissue and joints and create longer term consequences such as joint degeneration, leading to Osteoarthritis and connective tissue stress such as tendonitis. If you are experiencing pain, please speak with your doctor or a health professional.
