All sports injury clients regardless the type of sports they are play when they get injured, they must figure out to heal, get and stay fit so they can keep enjoying their sports and being active.
If you’ve a recent sports injury or if you’ve been suffering with an injury for a while it can be very tempting to ignore it and try to adapt and live with it.
You can get very easy frustrated and end up feeling stuck, wondering if you’ll ever be able to get back to playing your sport or keeping active like you used to be before.
If this happened to you, don’t worry you are not alone we see people going through this all the time. In fact, we see people living with an injury from sports or exercise in our clinic throughout the year.
I spent over 20 years working with sports injuries and I’ve seen all the types of sport injury and I know well how to help people recover from their injuries as fast and completely as possible.
A lot of people suffering of sports injuries Always asking:
You may ask yourself, It’s been a long time since the injury, Why am I still suffering with an Injury that’s preventing me From Being Active and Playing My Favourite Sport as before?
Most people think they’ll be able to return to their sport or exercise after a few days of rest only to find when they do go back, they’re still restricted. Sometimes their condition is worse than when they were first injured. Often when you rest there is little or no pain, but as soon as you start up again, the pain returns and regardless of the amount of rest the improvement is very minimal.
Does it sound common?
Another common occurrence we see in our Physiotherapy Clinic is people who have seen their doctor, they receive the prescription of:
Few weeks later clients return with minimal or no relief, then you will be told for more rest, and try another stronger pain medication.
Sport injuries like muscle strain, ankle sprains, knee injuries etc., – complete rest is not always the best advice.
With sports injuries, it’s easy to become frustrated and confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have a back problem – but it’s your hip causing the problem. In addition, prolonged periods of rest can cause problems to other parts of your body.
The confusion over resting often prevents people from seeking out the needed treatment to repair their injury and get back to their pre- injury level of function and participation. The worse scenario, many people just give up, must believe that their days of being active are over and they will never return active and playing their favorite sport again.
