Exercise can Increase Tolerance for Pain

Los Angeles, CA – 2/13/2014

There are a lot of cliché adages regardingpain and physical fitness: what doesn’t kill makes one stronger… no pain, nogain… not surprisingly, these phrases do have some basis in reality.  New research out of Australia indicatesthat those who exercise and train harder actually increase their tolerance forpain.

Research done previously indicated thatendurance athletes have higher pain tolerances, but the same pain threshold thatnon-athletes have.  This mean thatthose who exercise and those who are sedentary experience something painful atthe same point, but those who are athletic can tolerate the sensation longerthan non-athletic individuals can.

Discomfort is part of beginning any exerciseroutine, but those who engage know that the pain will eventually subside as thebody becomes used to the exercise. At this point, it’s time to increase the weights on the bar or the distanceone is running to challenge the body further.  This increase in training brings on the pain again, but manyfind they are more able to handle the sensation.  They still find the sensation of new movement painful, butthey’re tougher and more able to deal with it and continue training.

Getting fit makes a person tougher, and bygetting tougher a person could be inspired to become fitter and thereforehealthier researchers venture. “Exercise training may facilitate the development of brain function thatincreases tolerance of these signals and associated sensations, and thisincrease in tolerance may contribute to improved endurance performance.”

No pain, No gain indeed.
