DON’T CHASE THE SYMPTOMS. HUNT THE CAUSE.
Some injuries are more complex than others. The cause or ‘driver’ of an injury can be at a site far from the location of pain. Whilst addressing the local site of discomfort may result in some symptomatic relief, it often doesn’t address the reason an injury occurred in the first place. Injury prevention. It’s important.
Most of the time, an area or tissue (muscle, tendon, bone), will become symptomatic if it is loaded adversely. Whilst the pain may be at the local site of the tissue, there are many factors that contribute to why it may have experienced loading beyond what it is capable of managing.
These contributing factors can include: tightness; weakness; biomechanical variations; joint restrictions; individual anatomy; poorly designed training programs; significant increases in activity…the list goes on.
If the factors contributing to an injury are not addressed, there is a good chance it will reoccur, either in the same or a different location. Not all contributing factors are modifiable, but some most definitely are.
At The Injury Clinic we will hunt the cause and not get distracted by the symptoms. So, if you’re struggling to get on top of an injury or have been experiencing recurrent niggles…come and let us work with you to hunt the cause.
