Clinically 'pain' is the most prolific word used by patients and if it's not part of the reason, then it's usually the exact reason they have attended sports therapy. Often even when a patient has sought professional care for an injury, a certain degree of pain still lingers for weeks into months, into years... Had this problem?
This is an important occasion where the implementation of proper postural dynamics can help reduce pain. When more of the correct muscular tissue is recruited to support the bones of the body, the body becomes more structurally sound.
Aligning your posture in an optimal position minimizes the dysfunctional altered altered length tension relationships of the core and spinal muscles reducing the amount of pressure load onto the vertebral discs which is known to lead to peripheral pain (pain down the arms, legs).
For example a shoulder problem can often be directly related to a spinal alignment issue that has has caused restriction to the shoulder joint and compromised movement resulting in symptoms down the arm and a complex medley of pain and disposition to further injury.
