Top 5 Fridays! 5 Emotional/Liftstyle Stressors That Increase Injury Risk


[INJURED? DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THIS WITH INJURY] ☝🏻



_
πŸ‘‰πŸ»There are many determinants of both performance & injury ♾
_
πŸ‘‰πŸ»I often say injuries are far more than ‘skin deep’: meaning that it’s not just about the biology of the injured or sore tissues & the (training) loads that may have overloaded that area -commiseration also needs to be given to the difficult to quantity ‘3rd dimension’ that is the emotional stressors an athlete/ individual is experiencing/subject to πŸ€”
_
πŸ‘‰πŸ»training overload DOES NOT explain all injuries. The body is under load due to emotional distress (relationships, work, exams, financial hardships etc) ⚖️
_
πŸ‘‰πŸ» It is well established scientifically that our adaptation to our training loads is influenced (positively ➕ & negatively ➖) by biomechanical factors (how we move) as well as various emotional and lifestyle stressors πŸƒ‍♂️+ 🧠
_
πŸ‘‰πŸ»For example elevated academic^ πŸ€“& emotional stress* πŸ˜”, anxiety” 😬, and the stress related personality traits of self-blame’’’ πŸ₯Ί, and perfectionism**πŸ€”have all been shown (see references below) to increase injury risk ⬆️πŸ‘Ÿ
_
πŸ“ŒTAKE HOME: recognise that lifestyle stressors & your accompanying emotions play a role in injury risk & potential subsequent injury development. & rehabilitating. While we can’t control what happens to us we can at least recognise that our emotions can impact us (➕ & ➖) & through awareness best attempt to monitor & manage our lifestyle stressors to help keep training 🎽
