The Importance Of Sports Therapy In The Life Of An Athlete
The life of an athlete is far from the grandiose ideal that many consider to be true. The reality is, it’s a life chalked full of discipline, challenging work, and numerous considerations about health and wellness, including those of which to find ways to prevent injuries and maintain good health so we can train, compete, and earn a living doing what we love. Sports therapy and in particular, sports injury prevention, is at the center of an athletes true focus.
My typical athlete’s day begins at around 5 a.m. and consists of a light breakfast (usually some granola cereals, fruits, a few almonds, all topped with some smooth cashew milk) and numerous types of rigorous training cycles like uphill climbs, interval sprints, strength training and recovery techniques.
I usually come home after running some errands and catch up on emails and sponsorship communications. Yes, an athlete who earns a living as one must treat it somewhat as a business. To ensure you get to do what you love as an athlete, you need support, sponsorship often offers that financial, much needed support. This comes with a standard of lofty expectations that you are at peak performance always and that you can minimize injuries in order to avoid “down time”, which in turn, often spells the loss of your sponsors.
