What can you do?

June 8, 2022

A common thing that we hear when someone gets injured, they’re really reluctant to go and talk to a physio, particularly active people, when they get there the stereotype is the physio says, okay, so this is your week. You’ve got the gym, the PT, you run a couple of times, you ride the bike, we’re just gonna put a big red line through all of that, you’re not allowed to do any of it. And here you go, here’s some boring exercises that I’m gonna get you to do six times a day. Instead of that, depending on your injury, we’re more likely to go, absolutely. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes to all your activities but perhaps with running and PT we’re just going to decrease the intensity, decrease the volume, or avoid certain exercises. So we’re never about telling you to stop we’re about telling you what you can do. We’re about talking to your coach, your trainer, whoever else that you have that’s part of your athletic life and we are working out a system where you can do as much of what you want to do as you can. Then underneath that, we have got some specific things that we get you to do, that’s getting you to work harder than you have before so you can get back to handling all of the fantastic stuff you do. Not only with getting over your current injury, but less likely to do it again. So if your physio’s about what you can’t do, find one that’s talking about what you can do. https://youtu.be/AL24OxTKZ4M
