Pain is like...
It’s a LOUD message to your brain that can interfere with just about everything else! It affects our focus mentally. It affects our attitudes toward ourselves and others emotionally. Physically, it can cause an array of problems, but most notably it causes muscles to contract at the wrong times. This part becomes important when we try to perform any activity and coordination and balance are off. We see it many times when someone who has sprained an ankle, can’t walk normally and so, they hobble.
Muscle contraction in the correct order is HUGELY important but almost impossible to do correctly when there is a PAIN message screaming to your brain!
