August 6, 2004, Newsletter Issue #198: When Not to Work Through Pain

Tip of the Week


If something doesn`t feel right, your body`s telling you to take care of it. If you don`t fix yourself up, it could lead to a more serious injury—or to a chronic pain that might one day become arthritic.

Instead, take time off. Ice the sore area to reduce swelling and resume the activity when there is no more pain. Then take it easy and keep icing post-workout. If the pain doesn`t get better within a week, it`s time to see a doctor.
