The Gift of Injury
How did Dr Stu McGill take top ranked powerlifter, Brian Carroll, from his devastating back injury in 2012 to full recovery and numerous national first place finishes? The formula: Compile your list of prerequisites for the sport, determine what you can do, and then calculate the difference. It’s as simple as putting pen to paper and yet the noise of the hacks and gimmicks make choosing the best tools possible difficult for the layman.
However, the body is often far less complicated that an athlete’s psyche particularly when that psyche is corrupted by tremendous pain. Learn how Dr McGill treats the pain by repairing the system’s mechanics AND allowing the athlete to build on pain-free ranges of motion. As Doc says, pain doesn’t reveal what you should do, but a proper assessment will. Yeah. The man is the Master Yoda of recovery.
