These questions arise very frequently in rehabilitation. Should it hurt? Is it OK if it hurts? Will I set myself back if it hurts? Will I get better if it doesn't hurt? In this episode we examine a pair of articles that examine these questions. One article is an RCT that covers pain free vs. painful exercise in an acutely injured population, while the other is a systematic review and meta analysis of the approach in chronic pain populations.
