As manual therapists we diagnose and treat CAUSE of pain,and do not hold to the concept that making a weak painful condition strong by exercise,will eliminate pain.Mechanical pain must be addressed,by normalising joint mechanics,spinal or extremity,and teaching the patient prevention,and self management,thus eliminating the need for"maintainence" by a professional.My absolute rule is that the techniques we use MUST be pain free. Improvement in pain and movement must happen at the first visit.
