Pain Management in Athletics (Introduction)

On one hand, modern athletes know “no pain, no gain,” and “pain is weakness leaving the body,” are obsolete training mantras. Pain in training is often unnecessary, and pain in competition should not be overwhelming, intolerable, or constant.

On the other hand, it is unreasonable to say that successful athletes don’t regularly experience pain or unpleasant sensations.

Athletes benefit from learning how to manage pain effectively.
