Sports Injuries & Treatment: Part 1

A Neurobehavioral Treatment for Sports Trauma (Part 1) | Podium Sports Journal

Who hasn’t admired the neuromotor skills on display in an Olympic Diving or Gymnastics event?  To coordinate the millions of muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, and functional tissue sequentially in such a physical display is nothing short of miraculous.  A regular by-product of this type of physical development and training is injury, sometimes traumatic, and the body develops defense mechanisms for its own protection – including reflex arcs that must be overridden if the athlete is to continue performing at such sophisticated levels.  It was in response to this type of problem that Brainspotting Therapy (BSP) was created.
