Whether you’ve recently had 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.
It can be very easy to be frustrated and wondering if you’ll ever feel as good as you once did.
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 clinic in Oregon, Wisconsin.
I spent years working in college and professional basketball so I’ve just about seen every type of sports injury there is – and know how to help people recover from them. When my players 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:
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.
Many hope that the pain will just go away on it’s own. They hope that it’ll just be gone after waking some morning like nothing happened. But, 3 months later the pain is still there….
Maybe, you saw your doctor and they took X-rays and essentially just told you to rest and take ‘painkillers’. But, this is usually not the best advice.
When that doesn’t help, you seek out Dr. Google or YouTube videos to help (even though you know most of the info on the internet is not credible). You tentatively try a few things you find online, but that doesn’t help.
If any of these sound like you, we would love to help you by inviting you to book a phone call with our Physical Therapist at our Oregon, WI clinic to find out what can be done to help you.
It’s a GOOD thing that you’ve tried some (or all) of these things as this will help us determine what DOESN’T work.
Click on the link below to schedule a call to get some real advice over the phone. We’ll be pretty blunt with you. The phone call is a courtesy we provide without any obligations to book future appointments. Our goal is to simply help you make the right decision so you don’t get strung around by other providers.
We want you to be comfortable with us before working together. If you’re skeptical or unsure about us, we invite you to start out with a completely-free, no obligation, risk-free 20min Discovery Visit with our PT.
During this visit, we’ll determine the source of the problem and give you an opportunity to see what we’re about. After the free session, we’ll provide you with options for how to best address your issue.
