One of the greatest concerns of an athlete is the possibility of getting injured. Injury can prevent you from training, competing, or simply participating in the sport that you enjoy. Many athletes have learned to endure and work through injury and have accepted that pain is part of their sport. Sadly, we end up seeing many athletes playing in extreme pain, with a lower level of performance, getting surgery, or retiring early and no longer playing their sport.
Postural dysfunctions and muscular compensations are the main reasons why many athletes end up suffering from pain and become vulnerable to injury. This is also why many athletes seem to repeatedly re-injure certain parts of their body over and over. Accidents from trauma happen occasionally when playing a sport, however, have you wondered why many athletes feel pain or get injured doing simple motions they have done many times before? The answer is that athletes push their bodies to the limit despite the problems in their bodies, but there is a point in which the body simply cannot compensate anymore.
By restoring the body to its functional design/blueprint, MBF® Posture Alignment Therapy can drastically reduce the chance of injury. The human body was designed for movement; therefore, a body without dysfunction can withstand the most intense demands and forceful impacts without much difficulty. This can be one of the great assets to an athlete whether you are a high-level competitor or recreational hobbyist.
No injury occurs in isolation on the body. Every injury has an effect on the entire body and the more severe the injury and greater the effect. Other methods of health care only examine and attempt to treat the location of the pain and completely overlook what is happening in the rest of the body. That is why recovering from injury is generally so slow. By using the MBF® system, you can dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to recover. Injuries that once took months to recover from may now only take weeks. What once took weeks may only take days and it has not been uncommon to see minor injuries wiped out immediately.
