How To: Bounce Back From An Injury

An injury can be a major set-back mentally and physically depending on it’s severity. If you are dealing with an injury that requires surgery, you’re more than likely going to be out for the remainder of the season. It is important during this time to stay focused, and try to be positive. Dealing with an injury can be a trying time in an athletes career. Many questions, concerns and doubts come to mind. But instead of focusing on the negative aspects of it, focus on the positive. A lot of athletes come back faster, stronger, and quicker after bouncing back from an injury. So as crazy as it may sound you may actually benefit from your injury depending on your situation. Also remember when you get injured it is not the end of the world (although it may feel like it). Your injury will come and go, always remember that! Lastly, listen to what the doctor tells you. Doctor’s spend years in medical school for a reason, they know what they’re talking about! So if you feel that you are 100%, but your doctor tells you are not ready yet, then listen! Coming back too soon may set you back even further due to re-injury! As long as you remember to remain positive, be patient, and to listen to your doctors advice, you will be just fine!
