If you’re dealing with pain, you might be unsure whether to keep moving or rest. Rest seems like the most comfortable option in some cases, and immediately after an injury, rest is essential for optimal recovery. However, appropriate gentle movement can actually help you heal faster and remain more active during the healing process. Understanding the role of movement in managing pain is crucial for your recovery and overall well-being. A physical therapist is often an essential member of your care team when approaching pain - we love helping our clients at EW Motion Therapy move safely and pain-free, whatever that looks like for them.
