How to deal with aches, pains, and nagging injuries

body aches

I was talking to a few members at our community party recently and we were discussing aches and pains and how to deal with them.

One had a “bad back” and is now squatting pain free. 

Another has a shoulder that gives her trouble and recently has regained almost a full, pain-free, range of motion.

And another came to us with pretty much everything aching, and now they feel so good they barely remember what chronic aches and pains feels like.

Whether you are getting back into routine or are staying consistent, it’s inevitable that we have the odd ache, pain, or twinge that just doesn’t feel right.

And this is particularly relevant if you have a pre-existing injury, such as a history of back pain, a knee injury from years ago, or an achy shoulder (or, if you are like me, you have all three!).

I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to feel like you’re on the right track and making progress towards your goals and then that old injury rears its ugly head as yet another obstacle in your path.

It makes you want to throw your hands up, say screw it, and just do nothing.

As someone who has studied under the world-renowned low back pain specialist, Dr. Stu McGill, has B.Sc. Kinesiology degree, and done thousands of hours of continuing ed, I can say I understand the emotional response.

I’ve done the exact same thing.

And it doesn’t work.

Here’s what does, and exactly what you can do when aches, pains, and injuries act up on your path to progress.
