PAIN happens for one of two reasons:

  • The impact of an accident
  • Repetitive strain through doing an action without adequate strength or alignment and so putting excess strain on a part of the body.
  • Ageing and losing sight of the correct way to move due to previous habits and injuries creating us to compensate in the way we move.

Pain may or may not be present right now, but bad alignment will eventually cause it.

Highlighting bad movement technique can explain why a certain part of you is less than comfortable. Continuing to move and use an uncomfortable joint will end in wear and tear, but produce a compensation along the way with other areas working overtime. Before embarking on an exercise regime it is a really good idea to check the body out for its ability to move.

Even when in pain understanding the bodies ability to move is the first step to reducing pain and improving the quality of life and activity. Functioning with pain is not only cumbersome, but it can lead to depression, it leads to irritation which results in a less than happy family life. All these things can be improved if we learn to move in a way that does not elicit pain.
