A Message From Dr. Sharmaine Longsworth, Owner & Founder Of Physiophyx Physical Therapy

Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Ignoring a sports injury and attempting to power through the pain is tempting, but seeking professional evaluation is crucial.

Alternatively, feeling trapped and uncertain about your ability to participate in sports or stay active is understandable…

If you’re experiencing this, you’re not alone; it’s a common challenge we encounter daily at Physiophyx Physical Therapy . Whether it’s summer or winter, our Saginaw, Texas center sees patients seeking relief from sports-related injuries.

We believe it’s counterproductive when medical professionals advise solely “resting” for injuries. This approach often weakens muscles and increases the risk of future injuries. That’s why many individuals suffering from sports injuries ask themselves:

"Why Am I STILL Dealing With An Injury That's Hindering My Activity And Favorite Sports After Months?"

Many wrongly assume a few days of rest will suffice to heal their sports injury and allow them to resume their exercise routine. However, upon returning to physical activity, they often experience heightened pain. While rest may offer temporary relief, resuming exercise often brings back the discomfort, regardless of breaks taken.

Does That Sound Familiar?

A common scenario in our clinic is when patients visit a doctor, receive advice to rest, wear supports, and take pain relievers. Yet, weeks later, they return in agony, only to receive further prescriptions for stronger medications.

The problem with solely resting is that it’s not always the best solution. If you’re frustrated by conflicting advice and misinformation, know that you’re not alone. It’s easy to mistake a back injury for a hip problem due to shared symptoms.

Sports injuries may be misdiagnosed, as pain often originates from a different area than the actual injury site. Prolonged rest may weaken other body parts, making them vulnerable to injury.

Unfortunately, uncertainty around “resting” often leads to procrastination and avoidance of decisions that could facilitate healing and return to regular exercise. Many resign themselves to inactivity, considering it normal or inevitable.
