How can pain be prevented?
Pain is an unpleasant physical sensation. It can be mild, moderate or severe. It is a natural defence mechanism that helps us avoid further harm by alerting us to a problem or injury. Chronic or persistent pain can have a negative impact on quality of life.
Preventing physical pain involves taking care of your body and choosing a healthy lifestyle. For example, regular physical activity can strengthen muscles and reduce the risk of injury. Conversely, it is best to avoid postures or movements that place excessive strain on muscles and joints.
