While it would be philosophically degrading for me to to say that injuries in sport are inevitable, reality is that there are far too many variables involved to say that we can prevent them completely.
Minimizing risk or probability of injury has been discussed to no end but relatively speaking, much of what to do following injury can only be found in texts such as Brotzman's. Guidelines such as the ones he provides are "okay" to start, because you have to start somewhere, but in my opinion, this orthopaedic model is quite restrictive in its applicability.
Following the SFMA model in my opinion is better, as it respects both functional movement (whatever that is) and the influence of pain on motor control, but truly the great clinicians treat in high definition. That is, doing the things few people actually even think about when it comes to musculoskeletal injury.
Now this post isn't about teaching one how to fish, as I'm still in the process of learning myself, but what I can do is lead you to several of the bodies of water that I've recently been scoping out.
As a primer though, here's some basic information about muscle healing and tendon injuries.
Amongst the many considerations - and by no means will this be an exhaustive list" when it comes to taking it more "HD", some of the avenues I've gone down are as follows:
Tissue Stress & Rate of Circulation
Again, ultimately it's about taking recovery to the next level so if anyone out there has other suggestions, I'm all ears. We all want to get "high def" and what better way than sharing knowledge.
