The other day I had a patient who is an American Footballer who plays at an advanced level, and this is what his rehab looks like. Yes, it looks like a training session. Why? Because even whilst he’s injured he can squat 150kg and deadlift 100kg (reduced from 200kg)
You yourself may have noticed that the rehab we provide will match what you want to achieve with that injured area. It’s the same situation with mental health. The more you demand of your brain, the more resilient the brain has to be.
So yes, sometimes rest and recovery is the right thing to do… other times we have to work to improve our resilience to trauma; mentally and physically
