Some of the most common treatments for helping patients overcome chronic pain and overuse injuries can leave them in worse shape than when they arrived.
Protocols rooted in the ‘no pain, no gain’ mentality often work against patients, activating self-defense mechanisms that freeze muscles, compress nerves, and sharpen pain.
Many therapists add myofascial release to the mix because it’s less invasive, but misapplications and outdated techniques will yield little relief and can be just as harmful to outcomes.
As time passes without progress, even the most promising patient can plateau early, growing disengaged and depressed — convinced therapy is a waste of time.
Prove them wrong.
