Unfortunately, most people assume this is a necessary feeling for every workout and begin chasing it. I’m here to flip that idea on its head and give you a couple reasons why it actually ISN’T something you want to chase 24/7.

Quells my Anxiety
You can tell Dr. Jen is passionate about helping people heal and FEEL better. Before discovering her and this podcast I had so much anxiety around old injury flare-ups and not being sure if I would ever get back to doing the activities that I love. Since I began listening, performing CARS, and working with my own PT, I have finally begun to experience relief and heal my body and old movement patterns. I cannot thank her enough for creating this. Also, I adore listening to her and Dr. Ryan interact. Their conversations are awesome and make me feel like I’m there listening to two good friends riff on subjects that they love. Don’t sleep on this one. These are truly life-changing.
The best PT on the pod! I look so forward to every time there’s a new post! Dr. Jen explains concepts within pain and rehab like no other. I also really enjoy Dr. Ryan’s insight when he is a guest. Keep being awesome!
