Wounded pride is what happens when things do not always turn out the way you were expecting or planning for. Just take the life of the dedicated athlete who trained so hard all year round for the big event. She did all that was necessary to ensure that she was in peak physical condition and pleasingly, she achieved her objectives. That is until the gun went off in more ways than one. The race was run before she barely got past the start line. She came up pretty short and sore, in more places than one, and her race was finished before it even started.
For all the things that could go wrong, she went and twisted her ankle and tore some pretty crucial ligaments in the process. All that year’s hard work gone to chalk dust. Had she been a regular feature of the sports therapy Toronto environment none of this would have happened. Previously, the perception was that sportsmen and women would only be showing up at these centers when they got injured. That’s not how it works. Yes, serious injuries are being treated, all the time. Accidents still happen. But chances of that happening are few and far between once you’ve been on the therapy table long enough.
You schedule regular therapy sessions to keep your muscles and limbs supple, flexible and strong. You don’t need an accident to injure yourself. Over-worked ligaments and tired muscles can also do the damage. Regular therapy encourages the less is more principle. You work with sports oriented therapists who know a thing or two about how training schedules are supposed to work these days. And if you find that the approaching big event is all too much to bear, there is always a willing ear and a wise word for you.
