Career Ending Injury

March 2, 2020

What is the ​reason ​for all of the hard work at practice? All of the training. All of the discipline, sacrifice, and passion of an athlete?

 

​To play​, of course.

 

I just witness ​another ​athlete go down with a career ending injury. Why?

 

 

"That would never happen to me" ​Mentality

 

 

- Waiting to get a stretch or massage after you get hurt and then waiting until you get hurt again = a "That would never happen to me" ​Mentality​

 

​​- Waiting until you get hurt to finally say, "I will find a way to get to the gym to do recovery 1x/week in season" = a "That would never happen to me" ​Mentality​

 

- Foam rolling for 90 seconds 2 days per week and saying, "Yep, I am doing adequate amounts of rolling and injury prevention" = a "That would never happen to me" ​Mentality​

 

 

​Chronic overuse injuries account for more than 50% of all college and youth sports injuries. Chronic overuse = preventable.

 

 

 

I know, for many of you, your athlete is in season right now. They are ​always ​in season. Whether it is 7:15 pm or Saturday morning, the pain of discipline is far better to deal with than the pain of regret.

 

 

 

Email us at info@pfpfit.com and we will get your athlete set up for their 1x/week in-season maintenance and recovery program.

 

 

 

This is just the ​physical injury piece. ​There are even more mental and emotional "injuries" kids are struggling with in-season nowadays.

 

 

 

- Coach benching me

- Coach not thinking before he calls me out, berates me, or questions my character

- Teammates being arrogant, rude

- Not performing to my best, struggling through a slump

- Self-sabotaging when I mess up

- Negative attitude after a failed attempt, leading to yet another bad play

 

If you want to make sure all of your athletes year round training, practice, and efforts result in a confident, healthy, successful season...let's work together to find a way!
