The short answer is maybe, but eventually it will catch up with you. I have many patients that come in and say they can usually work through the pain but this time it will not go away. This response indicates to me that they never actually worked through the pain. Their body compensated by loading up another area. Eventually there will be no other areas to compensate to and pain will result. Most of my patients are between the ages of 30-55. This is the common age range when the body runs out of areas to compensate to. One of the most common under diagnosed sources of pain is muscle adhesion. If you have a nagging injury that will not go away or you have been “working through” the pain, call our office today.Button
