First off, I need to know when you start to experience pain. If it's before the workout, we can modify it. If it's during a workout, we can modify it on the spot. But I need to know! If you know a certain move is painful, let me know.There's a big difference between soreness and pain. If you're sore, good! Once you warm-up, you should have enough blood flow to reduce the sensation of soreness. Soreness should not be a reason to cancel and avoiding working out. But pain is a whole other issue.What should you do about it?

  • Ice it!
  • Avoid movements that will aggravate it.
  • Stretch the surrounding muscles. Roll on a foam roller. Use the Stick. Lay on the lacrosse ball. Just loosen things up.
  • See a specialist! Chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists...all have the knowledge and tools to fix you up.
