At some point in their training career, most athletes will unfortunately suffer from a soft tissue injury. Sometimes, they can alter their training loads to accommodate this, however most often, an athlete is required to stop training and rest, in order to heal themselves from the injury. This may put them out of training or competition for weeks or in some cases, even months. Regardless of how serious the injury may be, it can be tedious for an athlete to have to take time off, and not be able to perform at 100%.
Unfortunately, there is no magic cure when it comes to healing an injury. Rest, seeing a physiotherapist and altering their training loads seemed to be the main way injuries were treated.
