Dealing With Fear Of Reinjury

As you navigate your recovery, it is essential to lean into the strength of your support network, the care of our experienced physical therapists at BURD Physical Therapy, and perhaps the assistance of a mental health provider.

People often develop kinesiophobia, or a fear of movement, following an injury.

This can lead to a host of issues and negative outcomes in the rehab process, such as altered biomechanics, stiffened movement and joint protection, and dysfunctional muscle activation patterns.

People may also self-limit their activities, actively choosing not to participate in beneficial activities due to fear of re-injury.

Keeping track of your progress with a journal or Rehab Log is beneficial for monitoring physical gains and staying motivated!

Rehabilitation isn't always easy; however, shifting your mindset and looking at each obstacle as an opportunity for growth allows you to find success on the path of recovery.

Contact us today and let us help you achieve your physical goals, and get back to doing what you love.
