Listening To Your Body

We all know what it's like to be injured. Its sudden and it sucks. But in this day and age, most of our pain doesn't come from some injury. It's more of a chronic pain that gets worse over time. Something small, usually if not dealt with right away can become a chronic problem. Within the first few days of a new pain or slight injury is the most important time to prevent it from becoming chronic.

We live in a modern world and because of technology and laws and our culture, our chances of getting injured are far less in years past. Even for BJJ, though injuries happen, it's still a pretty safe endeavor. What we do have to watch out for is chronic pain, from repetitive movement or repetitive stress. Whether it's moving your knee over and over in a weird way or constant use of a mouse at an office.

Take care of yourself because no one else will.
