Pain as a Guide

Written by

Chad MorrisIf you are like me, sports are a big part of my life. I love watching sports, playing sports, and helping my kids with sporting activities. I work with athletes of all ages, and eventually we get to the point where that client feels they may be ready to start back to their sport. It does not matter if they were injured playing the sport they love, or something else has disrupted them being able to participate. The questions start coming out, “Am I ready? Will I be okay doing this again? How will I know if I am doing damage?”

Joe ChiaramonteWith a sports medicine career spanning 20 years (20 as a Certified Athletic Trainer-ATC and 6 as a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist-CSCS), I have come across thousands of student athletes with many different injuries, medical conditions, surgical rehabilitations and performance levels. I have come to realize that student-athletes are very different from 1998 to 2018.

Injury: The Dark Horse Opponent

Written by

PatrickLawrenceInjuries are not fun: inconvenient, unpredictable, emotionally and physically painful. They are dreaded by athletes and recreationalists of every skill and every competitive level. Their apparent negative effect is on the physical body, but because a physical injury can interrupt the pursuit of athletic goals, they can greatly impact mental well-being. It is easy to give in to frustration and disappointment and a whole heap of negative emotions because of an injury. But only if we let it.
