Understanding the Why Behind Your Pain...

Gives you power. Knowledge gives you control in seemingly uncontrollable situations or problems. Not knowing all the contributing factors behind you pain can lead to bad decisions.

It can lead to going down the wrong path OR going down the right path but not addressing all the contributing factors to your pain. Either way you end up with an unsatisfactory frustrating result and still in pain.
Having a diagnosis for your problem is one thing. It often brings comfort that there is a name for this thing that’s going on with me. That “I’m not the only one”. But what’s behind the diagnosis?


How did you come to this? How did you develop the stiffness, the loss of mobility, the weakness, and pain…that has left you unable to keep up and do the things you want to do? This is really the mystery that we need to solve.  The mystery of your problem, the mystery of your pain.
Understanding the why behind your pain is learning all the contributing factors to your pain. Only when you are armed with this knowledge can a complete plan be created to address your pain. Giving you the control and power for the best possible shot at achieving the best possible physical version of yourself!

What Causes Pain?

Forces cause pain. Forces beyond what the structures of your body can withstand. They can be high intensity and short duration forces like in the case of direct trauma.  A collision on a football field, a fall off a ladder, a motor vehicle accident to name a few.  On the other end of the spectrum they can be low intensity long duration forces. As with the case of most repetitive overuse type injuries.

​The three forces your body has to control are compression (being squeezed together), traction (being pulled apart), and shearing (one structure being slid on another).  Now your body can recover and rebuild from a lot of stress and strain caused when these forces are uncontrolled, until it can't.  You hit a point where your bodies ability to repair after the insult of these uncontrolled forces is exceeded.  Basically the breakdown exceeds the recovery and you get pain and injury.

Do You Know The Contributing Factors To Your Pain or Physical Limitation? 

Below you’ll find the contributing factors that lead to the imbalance, overload and overuse that increases stress and strain on tissues leading to breakdown and eventual pain and injury.  You're welcome to explore each of the contributing factors to find clues as to which ones are contributing to your pain.
