    What If The Pain Won't Go Away?

    Sometimes pain is very persistant and still won't go away even with "slow
    movement" type exercise therapy. If the pain persists, follow these
    rules and your recovery should be much faster.

    Rule #1
    Once you get injured... everything changes. Forget about your current
    rate of progress. Your new goal is to heal the injury. Focus all your
    attention on getting better.

    Rule #2
    Don't lay off... It doens't help. The pain just stays with you... It
    doesn't seem to matter how long you lay off. You must actually
    work the injury out of the joint. Which leads to rule #3...

    Rule #3
    Find exercises that do not cause no pain. This is important! When I say
    no pain, I mean no pain. Not pain that is tolerable or less than it was, I
    mean no pain. You see... pain sets up a histamine reaction which causes
    swelling and blocks circulation just like your nose plugs up with allergies...
    That's why you take anti-histamines to reduce the swelling, so you can
    breath again. Finding pain free exercises gets circulation into the injured
    area. Also... the exercise has to be pain free even before you warm
    up the joint. Not after.

    Rule #4
    Don't be fooled by endorphin release. It will mask the pain. Even if you
    can't feel it... The injury is still taking place. You must find exercises
    that don't cause pain without any warm-up. This will accelerate the
    healing tremendously.

    Rule #5
    After you have once found pain free exercises, use a light resistance
    and move very slowly through the exercise. It will stimulate nutrient
    rich, healing blood to circulate into the area and sweep out all the
    accumulated toxins.

    Rule #6
    Ice the injured area each night until it goes numb. Your body will sense
    the cold and send more warm fresh blood to the injured area. Be
    careful you don't over do it and get frostbite.

    Rule #7
    Take aspirin about every three hours, it is a mild anti-inflammatory
    and allegedly thins the blood to aid in penetrating the swollen tissues.
    Don't take it before workouts as it will mask pain. You need pain to
    tell you when you are re-injuring yourself.

    Rule #8
    Don't ignore the first signs of pain. Be alert on every exercise. If you
    feel a little tinge of pain, stop the exercise and go to something else.
    Most of the damage can be avoided if you will be more alert to the
    very first signs of pain. I'm talking about joint pain not the lactic
    acid pain associated with muscles working.

    Rule #9
    If you spend time in the Sauna just before your workout and three or
    four times during your workout it will increase Growth Hormone release
    Remember GH is a heling accelerator. Stay in just long enough to get
    warm but not long enough to perspire.

    One can't put the above into proper context until one question is answered: is the pain evidence of current injury (as opposed to old injury, stiffness, aches, limited ROM etc)? Many pains are not a current injury, so treating them like one is a waste of time.

    Rule #10: Ignore the above advice; the guy knows nothing. Aspirin, for example, does not "thin" blood, it reduces platelet aggregation, which has NOTHING to do with blood penetrating virtually all tissues. Growth hormone is largely released during stages 3 and 4 of sleep, so the only thing the sauna will do is cause peripheral vasodilation (how the body rids itself of heat) which means LESS circulation to your muscles as you exercise. Brilliant. And no, the body doesn't send more blood to iced areas to warm them; the body interprets the ice as a freezing ambient temperature and shunts blood AWAY from the area to prevent body heat loss. The OP has a very poor grasp of physiology, it seems.
