Principles from pro sports apply to everyone. Everyone needs more capacity than there activities require. This buffer zone is our insurance policy against musculoskeletal pain. If we don’t “train for the game” risk increases. Noone can predict the future or prevent pain. Our goal is to minimize risk & maximize recovery.
“NFL players worry about their health and safety as early-season injuries pile up”
“There were no offseason training activities or minicamps in May or June. Training camps were shorter and different in nature, and there were no preseason games.
Jumping right into an NFL season without the usual preparation period could be contributing to the rash of early-season injuries.”
The take home message is prepare for you’re valued life activities. Most musculoskeletal pain is not from trauma from under-preparation. So we need to learn what baseline gaps in our function exist that were upstream of our pain & predisposed us.
The gift of injury or silver lining of a current pain is now you can begin to bridge the gap from any capacity shortfalls to what you require to safely achieve the demands of you’re activities.
Just like in the NFL “We look at the biomechanics. We look at the play type and run that analysis for perspectives, including engineering analysis, a medical analysis, the epidemiological analysis. We are committed to doing everything we can to reduce all types of injuries.”

Different offseason and synthetic surfaces being blamed for rash of injuries: ‘You’re going to see a lot of injuries across the board.’
