Gray on Gray: Pain and Its Impact on Movement
Pain is not something we should cover up. We need to confront it.
Pain is a warning signal our body sends out when there is something not working correctly. Is it an underlying medical problem, an underlying structural problem, and what is going to take to overcome it? Learning how to confront your pain allows you the advantage of reducing the stress around it.
Functional Movement Systems provides the standard operating procedure to answer these questions to remove the stress from the equation to have a positive impact on your pain. Listen in as Gray Cook, co-founder of FMS, discusses why this approach is important for long-term health.

So how do we use the FMS to help guide our decision making with someone who experiences pain during the screen?
We can't forgot that pain is a warning signal and this signal should not be dismissed. But that also does not mean we have to stop all activities. Dr. Lee Burton, co-founder of FMS, uses a case example to discuss how we can approach a finding of pain with the FMS.
Many people experience pain daily. We want to be part of the solution of overcoming this pain, not part of the problem. Don't cover it up - confront it.
