Coming back from injuries

Coming off an injury can be a tough thing. One side of you is scared that another injury may occur, so one may play scared or not be sure he or she can perform the same. The other side wants to return as soon as possible, which may cause re-injury due to rushing the healing process. For those that may be timed, ease back into your normal routine and make progression as you feel comfortable. Once successful healing has happen trust that your body is ready for reentry, but also listen to your body. It may be all in your mind that you are not ready to begin participating in activity yet; however, your mind may just be filled with worry and doubt-trust your body and rehabilitation. For those that get anxious to return, that thought can be that he or she may lose his or her spot, playing time, or skills due to the time off. One should but these thoughts in the mind because it more then often will cause one to rush the healing process, which can lead to another injury.
