Recovering from an athletic injury
Recovering from athletic injury can be a difficult process. Even though it is mathematical based processed with linear improvement is often a haphazard process with positives and negatives occurring daily. Why is that? Apart from poorly coordinated recovery plans what makes the process being haphazard? Is that the missing specialist? Or coach support?
My answer is NO, not even close. What s your answer?
What lies as the root cause is not even close to that. When you’re an athlete what is the first thing that cross you mind? I would say it’s about returning to peak capability.
Injury overview and recovery process
When talking about Program it could easily end up in an endless Saga. Why?
With all coaching staffs and administrative personnel working to ensure all points of the rehabilitation process, especially when funding dictates the need to hire personnel capable of addressing injuries at multiple levels and all support in the world, you just have to consider one single aspect: how all that is being reflected in how you cope with the pain.
Restore neuromuscular control, balance, control, strength it is all about managing pain.
How to work, Choice of Exercises, Order of Exercises, Intensity it is all related to pain. There are no predefined rules
Having a 3 column table
Each athlete has the injuries listed carefully in the back of his/her brain. You do remember in details each and every detail since you have review that million times.
My question is: when looking at the beautiful table and check the few type of injuries you have had are you giving any attention to the ones you haven’t had?
My answer is No, why would I care about that?. What s your answer?
I foster and intend to create a supportive environment, where coaches and players are trained in both clinical and development techniques help for work through their problems. I’ve also seen that sport can be a strong complement to traditional psychotherapy when helping people heal from trauma, manage their mental health and learn to cope.
