There is no doubt we all have had our share of injuries. But, I want to talk about those injuries that kind of “just happen”. How often do you hear yourself saying… “but I was just picking up the sock off the
floor” or “I was just turning my head to see what the noise was” or “but I do this activity all the time”, and on and on…..
Did you know most injuries are caused by either “trying too hard physically” or doing some movement in a misaligned sort of way? And we can also add to that, the times when we are not mindful of what we
are doing (like tripping and falling).
These types of injuries are frustrating because they make us slow down, and even stop us for doing what we love to do for a period of time. I pulled my hamstring bowling (Yep, I was trying for that strike!) and it took me almost a year to
feel “back to normal”. And let’s not talk about tweaking my knee sideways when I was trying to do a dance step. Face it, these types of injuries happen as long as we are participating in life! I call them temporary health setbacks because with time, patience and tender loving care you’ll most likely be back to yourself again.
