Returning to play after injury requires a specific physical progression, but what does the optimal mindset look like for an athlete during the process? This is a question that Drew Werner and I have both been on a mission to answer for the athletes and colleagues we work with. Drew is a Certified Athletic Trainer who has gone on to obtain his masters degree in Sport Psychology from Capella University and a like minded colleague that is also integrating mental performance into sports rehabilitation. 

Some of our conversation topics include...

  • Bridging the conversation from physical to mental
  • Signs of mental health related issues in the training room
  • Breathing strategies to use when facing fear in rehab
  • Avoiding versus leaning into the mental side after injury
  • Goal setting after injury
