The Injury Health Blog is designed to be a free resource for active individuals of all ages shapes and sizes. Our information comes from research and the real-life treatments and experiences of our contributors. We aim to simply provide information and knowledge in a way that will allow individuals to make more informed and more proactive choices regarding their health and their injuries.
We started the Injury Health Blog because, as athletes, we were tired of searching for advice on health and injury issues only to find that the majority of advice out there was not properly designed for people that were active and interested in proactive treatment methods.
We’ve all had injuries, and know we should go see a doctor; however, it’s easy to script how those doctor appointments will go. What we always really wanted to know was …
- Do I need to worry about hurting myself further
- How long until it gets better
- What can I do to help it get better faster
- What can I do to prevent this in the future
These answers often were missing from regular advice online, so we created this blog.
