While many of our patients can remember the exact moment they first felt the pain of their injury, the majority are at a loss as to why the injury occurred. Most soft tissue injuries are a result of overloading the capacity of the body whether through improper training, poor posture at work, or faulty biomechanics. While it's our job to restore proper body function and cure the injury, we at Wellness in Motion Boston pride ourselves at educating our patients as to why this injury occurred in the first place and, thus, help prevent future reoccurrence.
Injury education and suggestions of activity modification are key components to proper treatment. Small changes such as footwear, training volume and nutrition for an athlete, or changing the the chair height or position of the computer mouse for the office worker will make big differences when it comes to suffering from recurrence.
