He or she needs no introduction, but the Olympian spends an entire sporting career preparing for the pinnacle moment of his or her career, to stand on the top rung of the pedestal and receive the gold medal for which he or she spent many years training so hard to achieve. Average Joe, and average Sally, on the other hand, is not so well known. But he and she should be by now. In fact, you could be that average Joe or Sally right now.
Athletic physical therapy is being utilized on most days of the week, in some form or another, by the Olympian athlete. Even if he or she is still in peak physical condition, he or she still needs the therapy. One form of therapy that is particularly pleasing and quite soothing is that of massage therapy. But, of course, it can and does happen. The athlete will get injured, and to the physical therapist, with specialist sports science knowledge and treatment skills, that he or she must turn.
It may be no more than a bit of pottering in the garden over the weekend, or tinkering with tools in the shed, or taking the dog for a walk in the park, but average Joe and Sally, especially if he or she is getting on in years, could also get injured. All good and well that he or she schedules another appointment with the GP, but what good has a bottle of prescribed painkillers ever done. No harm, in fact, more good is done when you entrust your physical ailments and injuries into the affordable care of a specialist athletic physical therapy consultant.
And injury to one is an injury to all, and what difference does it make what kind of injury it is.
