Restoring the Injured Athlete

Posted Jan 10 2013 12:52pm

We just held a great workshop this week on “Restoring the Injured Athlete” and had a great response from everyone who attended. We had many people say they really wanted to attend but could not attend for some reason (working, on vacation, live out of state, etc). I wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to learn the information presented could, so I am putting up the main points of the workshop here. We gave everyone at the workshop a fill-in-the-blank page and as we went through the workshop people filled in the answers. I suggest you try filling them out as best you can and then look below for our answers. Have fun!

“Never have I experienced such complete pain relief as I have following the Egoscue Method.” – Jack Nicklaus, world famous golfer

“I believe a large part of my success in the NFL is directly related to the unique program of the Egoscue Method.” – John Lynch, 9-time Pro Bowl selection

“I would highly recommend their expertise in pain relief and proper muscular function therapy.” – Tom Dolan, Olympic Gold Medalist

I had specific answer picked out for each blank but as a group we came up with many words that fit perfectly and made a lot of sense. So again there are no right or wrong answers, we are just looking for ideas that make sense, common sense. Here is what I had:

Don’t make the 4 biggest mistakes that cause injury.

  1. Playing through the pain. (could also be: exercising, working, running, etc.)
  2. Taking pain medications to hide the pain. (1st word could be: cover, mask, numb. 2nd word could be: symptom, injury)
  3. Exercising with imbalances. (could also be: compensations, dysfunctions, bad form)
  4. Getting surgery without addressing the underlying cause. (could also be: root dysfunction, true cause)

Learn the 3 keys that will keep you healthy, strong, and active for the rest of your life.

  1. Maintain postural alignment and balance. (1st word: proper, functional. 2nd word: posture, function)
  2. Exercising within your current level of function. (1st word: state, degree. 2nd word: fitness, conditioning)
  3. Staying tuned in to your body rather than tuned out.

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.
