Hi, this is Jason Morgan with Muscleworx Fitness in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Today, I'm going to talk to you about how exercise can help you prevent pain. If you're interested in pain prevention through list of exercise. First thing I would need to tell you is, is, exercises not necessarily a, a cure all and it may not be the root cause of your pain; but, it may not be the cure of your pain either. What I can tell you is that a lot of times people present with, with pain or symptomatic issues that exercise can correct. Take some by the, the experiences of lower back pain soreness or tightness. Many times that present itself as a lower back issue and of, when we find that, that it's a shortening of the hamstrings as well as, as weaken the abdominal muscles, therefore, causing an overcompensation in the muscles of the lower back to adjust creating a, a muscular imbalance and therefore causing pain. So, if we can correct those muscular imbalances through exercise, we can therefore prevent the onset of, of pain, again, because we have fixed the initial problem through the exercise. I would not look for exercise to necessarily be a pain prevention as, as whole unless you can actually direct to the root cause of the problem. Now, if you're trying to work on pain prevention obviously you're going to start with a lower impact type of exercise and you're, you're going to be focused more on the, the movement of the muscle and going through a full range of motion, making sure that you're getting a full lengthening or stretching of the muscles as well as the full contraction of the muscle. Warming up is extremely important for exercise for pain prevention or any exercise in general. You never want to start an exercise regimen at, without being properly warmed up. And in saying that, we want to make sure that there's just blood flow to the muscle. I see a lot of people come in and, and let's say you're going to workout your legs in a particular day and they come in and mainly start stretching their leg muscles. Well, you're actually setting yourself up, up for injured because there's no blood flow to that area yet. So, you want to make sure to get some blood flow that's jointly perform by five to ten minute workout, either on a treadmill or elliptical or recumbent or upright bike in the gym; just something to get the, the heart rate up a little bit, increase the warmth of the muscles, then, you're starting stand, stretching the cold muscles, you'd have less chance of injury and more chance of actually achieving the results that you desire. Please remember, these tips are just to provide basic information. Always consult with your health care provider and a fitness consultant before beginning any diet or exercise program.
