But what happens when we are out of balance and begin to notice physical discomfort (pain) that seems to have come on with notice of an immediate injury? Common sense tells us this may be an early warning sign that the body is in need of assistance to help it repair itself.
When noticed early, stretching and select exercises may be enough to help relieve the discomfort, whereas taking a painkiller would simply be masking the root cause of the pain.
