How Physical Therapy Saved My Gymnastics Career
The sport of gymnastics can be considered one of the hardest in the world. People are in awe with the athletes’ incredible talent, how their bodies move while in mid-air, and the level of strength it takes to tumble at unimaginable heights, yet make and stick their landings, flip on a four-inch piece of wood, and swing on metal poles. It is mesmerizing how effortless these movements look and we often wonder how their bodies seem so indestructible. However, behind these impeccable flips and twists comes with hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and unfortunately, multiple injuries.
