from the National Institute on Aging at NIH shared that Pain is your body’s way of warning you that something might be wrong. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you should avoid exercise. In fact, depending on the type of pain you have, exercise could actually help.
There are two kinds of pain—acute (temporary) and chronic (ongoing).
Acute pain begins suddenly, lasts for a short time, and goes away as your body heals. There are many causes of acute pain. With exercise, sometimes acute pain can be caused by overdoing it, like lifting something that’s too heavy, or using the treadmill at a speed too fast for you to handle at your current fitness level. Practicing exercise safety is the best way you can prevent over-exercising. Set realistic goals and pace yourself. Begin your program slowly with low-intensity exercises and work up from there.
