Over ninety percent of the people in the United States who exercise, train and condition, as well as athletes at all levels, will experience an injury and some type of accompanying pain.
As I mentioned earlier, the older we get the longer it takes to heal an injury, and resolve the pain and discomfort that follows.
Physical Therapy tends to be the go-to solution for injury resolution. Granted, it can help to a degree with resolving the symptoms, however it usually does not take into account the entire ‘foundation and structure’ of the human body. With an injury of any kind, multiple changes and shifts occur.
Truth be known, I have consistently found that a very high percentage of injuries were as a result of not taking the correct time and approach with their exercise and training programs.
The good news is that there are a variety of healing methods for injuries and pain that work regardless of one’s age. Below are some that I use, as well as the various clients from all walks of life that I have worked with.
- Sports Massage
- Advanced Rolfing
- Muscle Activation Technique
- Active Isolated Stretching
- Hydrotherapy in a deep pool
- Foundation Training
Each of the therapies listed above addresses a different part of our structure. We are made up of many parts, and all of the parts are interdependent.
In our culture, we have become so driven to race from A to Z as fast as we can, and not value the process of taking the time to build the ‘physical foundation’, then we begin to breakdown with injuries and accompanying pain. Far to many people find themselves in this cycle.
