Exercise Related Pain
Paint hat is severe or persistent when you train?
If you exercise, you will probably be familiar with exercise related pain on some level. Whether you have started something new to boost your health or happiness, or you are a seasoned sports person, pain is a common part of any exercise regime…’no pain no gain’ and ‘R.I.C.E’ are well known terms because of the frequency of sports related pain and injury.

Aches and pains don’t necessarily come with age or injury, although these can, for physiological reasons, increase your chances of feeling exercise related pain. It is also true that exercise can produce pain when injury is not present; more common when you have just started training, just increased your training, or you train quite a lot. Exercise induced pain without injury, is normally down to the delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS), which occurs when muscles swell during exercise and are required to repair to build new fibres post workout. This should pass within a few days and stretching and hot and cold showers can help your muscles to recover, and can be distinguished from persistent pain, that continues to raise its head.
So you have this niggling pain when you exercise; you’ve noticed it before and trained through it, a stretch or rest may help, but every time you train it comes back, it’s all part of the process, right?! NOT if it’s causing you either severe of persistent pain……
