Do You Need Sports Therapy?

Sports therapy can help you if you’re dealing with any of the following situations:

  • You struggle to meet the demands of the sport.
  • You’ve suffered an injury and are finding it hard to cope.
  • You have anxiety about your performance or the outcome of games.
  • You have symptoms of stress, including digestive problems, unhealthy sleeping habits, headaches, etc.
  • You aren’t sure if you want to dedicate your career to sports.

In addition to affecting your game-playing ability, the issues listed above can also cause problems in daily life. As former NBA player Ben Gordon writes, a lot of athletes feel like they need to keep the pressures of their career to themselves, and doing so creates a lot of harm for your mind, body, and performance.
