Nice ad, but is it okay to push through pain?

Well the answer to this question is… it all depends! There is no easy answer when asking yourself whether to push through pain and keep going, or to pull out. The sensory system is a complex circuitry connecting the periphery with the brain. Messages travelling within this circuitry can be up or down regulated by a multitude of factors. Your physiotherapist will be able to discuss this process with you and help you figure out whether the pain you’re getting is okay to push through, or whether it is an accurate warning message for more serious tissue damage.
