It was a Sunday afternoon and I had just woke up.
I could barely sit-up or move my leg.
I had just finished playing in a college football game the day prior.
I didn’t know what I had did and I was in bad shape.
Monday had rolled around and I was experiencing the same results. I could barely move.
I was desperate and in bad shape.
The problem was…
If I didn’t practice on Tuesday or Wednesday I wouldn’t be able to play that week’s game.
Needless to say… I needed a miracle.
First I had tried seeing our athletic trainer on campus.
I then went to our team physician.
Again, the same results.
It wasn’t until I looked up a thing called a “manual physical therapist” that I got the results I was looking for.
After seeing the Doctor of Physical Therapy he determined I had suffered a severe muscle strain in my abdomen and groin.
After one session, guess what?
I was at least able to move and practice.
I was amazed at how fast the results were.
Resting and icing weren’t going to help me.
I needed something different and something that would expedite my healing.
That’s when I realized it wasn’t my fault and that more people needed access to a manual therapists.
