The goal of return-to-play (RTP) isn’t to be 100% healed, it’s to be better than before you were injured.
When you get injured, you not only lose the ability to perform at your best, but you also lose the gains that you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
In order to make a full recovery and be prepared for whatever life throws at you, it’s important to have a well-rounded Return To Play program that includes strength training, speed training, change of direction, agility, jumping, and landing.
Why Are These Important?
Strength training will help you to rebuild the muscle that you’ve lost and speed training will help you to regain the explosiveness that is so important in many sports.
When you work out and increase your muscle mass, you’re not just making yourself bigger and stronger. You’re also making yourself more resistant to injury.
That’s because muscles act as cushions for the bones, absorb impact, and help to distribute force evenly throughout the body. The more muscle you have, the better your body will be able to handle the rigors of physical activity.
In addition, muscles also help to stabilize joints and prevent them from moving too far in any one direction. This is especially important for athletes who are constantly putting their bodies under stress. By increasing their muscle mass, they’re giving their bodies an extra layer of protection against injury.
Change of direction, agility, jumping, and landing are essential for developing coordination and balance – necessary means to avoiding injury.
Coordination and balance are important in avoiding injury for a couple of reasons.
If you’re coordinated, you’re less likely to fall. Your body is better able to adjust to changes in terrain and keep you upright.
If you have a good balance, you’re less likely to strain a muscle or joint. Your muscles and joints are able to work together more efficiently, which reduces the risk of overuse injuries.
