Pain is a real thing
It's a thing that spurs many people to contact me in the first place
But it's not, in itself, a problem
Pain is like that check engine light on the dashboard
You can ignore it
You can cover it
But it's still there indicating that somewhere there is a problem, and that you'd be well served by finding the problem and sorting it
Very often pain is simply a warning that certain tissues are being overloaded, maybe they're doing the work that should be spread over more tissue.
After all, the joints are supposed to move in a synchronous manner, creating a "wave" of tension and relaxation through the entire system.
When one joint moves, they all move.
Nothing works in isolation.
