EPISODE 464: Self-Care for Pain & Injuries

Have you ever gotten obsessed with a new diet or exercise routine? Enthusiasm is rare, so when you’re feeling it, you naturally want to go all in. But if your zero-to-hero journey is rushed, as it often is, you can end up with busted knees, a herniated disc, or plantar fasciitis.

My first two years as a yoga student, I was on-and-off injured constantly. I went to sports therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists trying to find someone to fix me.

A good therapist can be life-changing, but at the end of the day, you and your body have to work together to heal. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a physical therapist who will help you rethink pain and injury.

Listen & Learn:

  • How to incorporate your healing routine in your pre-existing exercise routine
  • Why consistent follow through is crucial for results
  • To scan or not to scan (MRI?)
  • The leading cause of injury (and how to prevent it)
  • How to determine whether your high risk sport is worth it or not
