It’s the first episode of The Injured Athletes Club podcast!
If you’re lucky enough to call yourself an athlete, chances are you’ve been injured. One of the biggest challenges of injury is facing recovery alone, but now, you don’t have to. We interview athletes, researchers, clinicians, and others in the field about how to cope with sports injuries and the mental side of the rehab and recovery process.
In this episode, my co-host Cindy Kuzma and I talk about what The Injured Athletes Club is, some of the most common psychological consequences of injury, why your “mental rehab” is just as important to do as your physical rehab, and what it means to rebound from an injury and come back stronger.
Keep tuning in and you’ll also learn how the mental skills you practice during rehab can benefit you long after you’ve recovered from injury. You can listen to the episode here or subscribe and listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Lisbyn, or Google Play.
