It’s not uncommon to see AFL players back on the paddock in double quick time after a serious sporting injury.  The recovery time in the real world can be markedly different but good communication between health professional and patient can lead to

Michael Williams features in the Health & Medicine section of The West Australian "Pushing through the pain"

Michael discusses the benefits of incorporating exercise into your daily life.

Michael says it is common for people to avoid exercising when they were in pain. “As a society we tend to operate under the pain equals damage and more pain equals more damage way of thinking. But for many pain conditions, especially chronic or persistent pain, we know from evidence that this is not true and in fact resting can be worse than exercising.”
