If you’ve recently suffered a sports injury or been suffering with one for a while, it’s easy to pass it off by telling yourself, “Oh it’s just an ache and will go away eventually” and it doesn’t. Or maybe you assume you just tweaked it working out.
Even worse, maybe you think “it’s normal” because you’re getting older…
It’s easy to get frustrated feeling jammed, questioning whether you’ll ever be able to get back to your activity or sport or keep as active as you did before your injury…
Our practitioners have spent a combined 20 years working with athletes of all levels and settings getting them back on the field, court, and stadium to compete the way they did before their injury.
Sadly, most people think rest and other traditional methods are the way to fix their problem, but as soon as they start playing again it comes back and it ultimately never improves.
Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone.
In fact, every day at R³ we help people in Westchester who feel this way
Have You Ever Asked Yourself…?
• Why does my injury hurt so much?
• Why isn’t this sports injury going away?
• Am I ever going to get rid of my Pain to get back IN the game?
If this is you, you’re not alone.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad information out there that causes people to live with SPORTS INJURIES for way too long.
Here’s 6 more reasons why it may be lasting longer than it should:
#1: You think the SPORTS INJURY will go away with rest, but it doesn’t.
#2: You go to the doctor who prescribes rest and painkillers, but the pills don’t get you where you thought you’d be and the pain returns.
#3:Assuming SPORTS INJURIES are a “normal” part of getting older and you should accept it.
#4: Believing that since you tried other healthcare professionals in the past means that it won’t work now.
#5: Relying on the internet for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your sports injury worse!
#6: Getting deep massages to temporarily relieve the pain initially, only to find it didn’t fix anything long term.
