Poi health: Understanding good pain vs bad pain

Whenever you exercise you may experience soreness or minor discomfort. But if you’re experiencing real pain, something may be wrong.


In this video, Sarah Hamilton talks about the difference between “good pain” and “bad pain.” Good pain is the soreness or discomfort you may experience after a healthy workout. Bad pain is the pain that alerts you to possible injury. Understanding the difference is crucial to avoiding injury, because if you’re experiencing bad pain, that means you are best to stop what you are doing before you are injured.
