If you’ve recently picked up a Sports Injury, or if you’ve been suffering with an injury for a while – it can be very tempting to pass it off as “nothing serious” and simply “put up with it” carrying on as best you can.

Or, it can be very easy to get disheartened and end up feeling “stuck”, wondering if you’ll ever be able to get back to playing a sport or keeping active like you used to…

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we see people going through this all the time. In fact, we see people living with an injury from sports and exercise in our physical therapy clinic helping serve Santa Clara, Cupertino, San Jose, Sunnyvale, and the entire Bay Area, no matter what time of year…

I spent years working with Olympic athletes so I’ve just about seen every type of sports injury there is – and know how to help people recover from them. When my athletes got injured – we started treatment the NEXT DAY.

That is completely the opposite to the way that most people respond to getting a sports injury, and is why so many people suffering with a sports injury are asking themselves:

“It’s Been Months Now – So Why am I STILL Suffering From an Injury That’s Stopping Me From Being Active and Playing My Favorite Sport?”…

Most people think that when they get a Sports Injury it’ll get better with a few days rest, and that they’ll be able to return to their sport or exercise again, quickly. But then when they go back to exercise again they’re still restricted – sometimes it’s even worse than it was when it first came on. Often when you rest there is little if any pain – but as soon as you start up again, it comes back and no matter how much rest you give it – it doesn’t seem to be improving.

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy cinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them they need to take a break, rest, wear a support and “try these painkillers” to “see how it goes” – but then 4 weeks later they end up going back to the same Doctor again because the injury hasn’t got any better, only to be given MORE rest, and ANOTHER prescription of even stronger pills.

The problem is that when it comes to sports injuries – hamstrings, ankle sprains, runner’s knee etc., – complete rest is rarely the best advice.

So maybe you’re confused and frustrated because you been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have a back problem – but it’s actually the hip where the problem came from?

Sports injuries can be very confusing because more often than not, where the pain is coming from, isn’t actually the area that needs to be fixed and worked on and if you rest for too long – other parts of the body become just as, if not more problematic!

This confusion over “resting” often leads people to continue to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their injury and return back to exercise. Worse, many people just end up accepting ‘their days of being active are over’ – as if it’s normal as if it ‘has’ to be that way.

Is That How You Feel Too?

If you’re currently frustrated and living with a Sports Injury, here’s 7 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

1. You thought it would go away on its own – but it didn’t
2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest, wear a support, and take painkillers – but the pills did nothing to help, and as soon as they wore off, you were left in agonizing pain again
3. A family member, or friend, told you that everyone is more prone to Sports Injuries as they get older, so you just accepted it
4. You sought help from other Healthcare Professionals or a physical therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
5. You’ve tried using things like heat pads, ice, and sports supports but they’ve done nothing to help make the pain better or return to exercise with ease
6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because you were in a lot of pain, but it still irritates you daily
7. You decided to get a few “sports massages” hoping that would fix the pain, but all they did was feel a bit ‘painful’ or maybe ‘relaxing’, and didn’t do anything to fix your injury long term…
