Progress doesn’t Regress!! This is why you’re plagued with an injury!!!
Your exercises are contributing to your pain or your lack of exercise. The body is like a house, you don’t build on an uneven, weak, soft surface. With the right foundation, you can build any house. The same goes for the body, build the right foundation first, then build on top of that.
Want a better version of who you are right now? But held back by aches and pains. You start exercising and now you’re in more pain than before. Everyone is progressing while you’re stuck trying to recover from your last run or workout. The solution, build your physical foundation first. What is the foundation? Proper mobility in specific joints meant for mobility and stabilized areas meant for stability.
This is the story we usually see. You develop pain or have some discomfort where ever it may be; back, ankle, hip, knee neck you name it. At first, you can ignore it cause you can still do the things you normally do. You can hang out with friends, go to work and exercise, you aren’t missing much. Then the pain progresses a little more discomfort but you can ignore it cause you’re still at the gym lifting more weight, running longer, still going to work and not missing out on family and friends time. Then one day, the pain gets so much that you can’t lift or run as much as before, you’re missing time from work, and you’re missing your kids’ hockey games/concerts. You see a specialist sports med doctor, or your family doctor, they do some investigating and find that you have a torn meniscus, torn rotator cuff, wear and tear in certain joints, disc bulge, degeneration into the joints in the neck etc. The list can go on. The warning signs were there to get checked, the initial discomfort. These warning signs are like the warning sign in your vehicle saying that the car is out of oil. And like your car that you can drive for a while without oil before it breaks down, same with the body you can go on and ignore it for a while until you can’t.

“Because if you have a strong foundation like we have, then you can build or rebuild anything on it. But if you’ve got a weak foundation you can’t build anything.”
- Jack Scalia
How much is it worth to be able to reach your fitness goals? To be able to run longer, to be able to continue to lift and keep up with the next generation?
What is the value of you being able to work, provide for your family, and grow your business or move up in your profession? What is the cost of not being able to provide? Can’t pay for that house, car, or build the business you want?
Is it not crucial for you to be there for your family? Too tired to play with the kids, or miss out on school plays? Missing birthdays of friends or extended family?
See our orthopedic specialists for therapy and discover where we can build upon your foundation and physical capabilities.
What most people don’t know is that most therapy is covered by personal insurance. It’s a benefit that is provided for you. Workplace injury and motor vehicle insurances also cover therapy. Depending on the insurance you have it could be a partial coverage of the cost or 100 percent covered. If you are already paying for it, might as well use it. Again, it’s for your benefit.
