TMHS 052: Exercise & Sports Injury Healing And Prevention

There is no such thing as a welcomed injury. When you’re rolling along enjoying your sport or exercise, an injury can make you out-of-sorts, in pain, and even depressed.

So, what do we need to heal quickly from an injury? And better yet, what do we need to do to prevent more injuries in the first place? That’s what we’re covering in today’s show.

You’re about to learn how my recent run-in with pain can become your path to bulletproofing yourself against injury. Today I’m going to share with you some of the best tips I’ve learned from the world’s top physical therapists, and tiny things you can do that will make all the difference in the world. Whether you were injured in the past, dealing with an injury now, or just looking to be healthy and active way into the future, you’re going to receive some valuable tools in this episode.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The painful injury I unknowingly caused myself to have over 10 times.

    1. Hi Shawn,
      I was hoping to get your input on my situation this since you seemed to struggle with similar injuires, unfortunately I did not get my questions answered in the podcast.

      I have an injured disc (Lower back) and a pulled groin and am wondering what exercises and how much to do for hypertrophy to replace Hip Thrusts, Squats, RDL’s and Bulgarian Splits Squats. These make up the base of my lowerbody routine and I cannot do them.

      Is there anyway to still get good hypertrophy with any other exercises to replace these that wont hurt my injuries?
