What to Do If You Feel Pain During Your Workout at The Gym
Written by: Eric Chludzinski, DC
Gym injuries happen.
They can be sudden, happen un-expectantly and quickly. In the middle of your dead lift workout you reach down to pick up that barbell and pain in your back stops you in your tracks instead.
They can develop over time. You have been training for a marathon and now there is a pain in the arch of your foot with each step, running or walking.
Does this mean you stop lifting weights or give up on that dream of running a marathon? No, of course not. But it does mean that it’s time to treat your injuries and bring your body back to a healthy state. It can also be time to start a regular routine of care that could help you avoid future injuries.
Consulting a doctor for treatment in regards to your gym injury is a great option. Our doctors are experts at treating the spine, of course, but they are also highly trained in many other musculoskeletal problems. They are skilled at treating both an injury to get the body back to a healthy state, as well as, focusing on the body’s overall structure and balance.
We use safe and effective methods that promote they body’s own natural healing process. Treatments include rehabilitation of the spine. However, they can also include rehabilitation of the extremities and joints increasing range of motion and promoting healing at the site of injuries.
Some examples of gym injuries include:
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfer’s Elbow
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Shin Splints
- Shoulder Injury
- Neck Injury
- Back / Disc Injury
- Plantar Fascitis
If you feel pain, you should seek treatment for any injury as soon as possible. Getting the proper diagnosis and treatment from the earliest onset of the injury has been known to increase the healing process, getting you back to the gym to train.
At Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation our highly trained providers will use a consultation and exam for the diagnosis process. Depending on the type of injury and severity, additional tests may be needed. For example, an MRI or x-rays may be used to confirm a diagnosis for proper treatment.
Once a diagnosis is confirmed a treatment plan is created. It may include chiropractic care, physical therapy, deep-tissue massage, acupuncture, laser treatment or interventional pain management.
The goal is always the same. Getting you out of pain and healthy enough to get back to the gym. We want you enjoying your workout routine, whatever it is.
