From the Running Physio on Facebook.

👉🏻When rehabilitating an injured runner it is paramount that the therapist acknowledges the importance that running plays in the the injured runner’s life 🎖🎽
⚠️failure to do so will likely lessen the patient /therapist bond as the runner may feel like their therapist ‘doesn’t get it’ 😒
📎alternately the therapist who does acknowledge the role that running plays in their patient’s life is off to a great start on the rehab journey in returning the runner back to full running 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️👍🏻

She will ask me to tell her what I understand about the rehab. She also discusses the timeline from now to Melbourne marathon. I know it has made me feel comfortable about follow up visits.

Our modern lives are set up to make day-to-day living easy, relatively carefree and comfortable. We no longer have to hunt for food and shelter is more an idea of permanence, status, comfort, and style than an idea of protection or a place to rest between long journeys in the natural world. In short, our mental training takes a big hit.

The progression through the industrial revolution into the digital age has progressed society and culture in ways previously unimaginable, while at the same time stripping back our capacity to absorb discomfort, inconvenience, and challenge.
