The Primary Reasons Behind This Issue Are:
Impaired Mechanics: Limited range of motion due to joint stiffness or decreased muscle flexibility. Weakness and muscle imbalance also contribute to reduced joint stability.
Injuries: Tissue damage resulting from sudden impact or stress.
Chronic compensations: Avoidance of exercise in certain muscle groups due to a previous injury or fear of future harm. Overuse of other tissues can result in chronic compensations.

Important Concepts to Understand
Tissues possess a natural ability to recover. Nonetheless, the body may become stuck in the inflammatory phase of tissue repair, requiring intervention to transition to the healing phase.
Pain may not always correspond to imaging findings, which may indicate tissue injury without any symptoms or reveal no injury despite the pain. Nerve tissue oversensitivity can also cause pain in the absence of imaging abnormalities.
Muscle soreness following exercise is common and not necessarily a cause for alarm. Micro-damage caused by overloading is essential for muscle growth and strengthening. Evaluating soreness can aid in determining when to increase or decrease training intensity.
With appropriate guidance, correct mechanics, and progressive tissue loading, it is usually possible to resume desired activities.
