The guys at Conqasport have another good challenging article, this time of the mindset around injury and the rehabilitation process. Specifically they also look at Springbok captain, Jean De Villiers who is fighting against time.
When does the Rehab process begin?
It begins as soon as the injury takes place. So challenge to the team around the injured athlete is
- Deal with the mechanics and stabilization of the injury
- Be confident and calming in the situation
- Start by creating a realistic expectation of what the process will be going forward and especially time frames and expectations of the athlete.
So take a read and be challenged.
Conqasport is also hosting their first Elite Sport Summit on the 2nd and 3rd of September in Cape Town. Looking forward to attending and being challenged, along with moderating one of the sessions.
