Drs. Phil Maffetone and Catherine Dudick, a trauma surgeon in Atlantic City, come on to talk about the relationship between trauma and exercise and give recommendations to endurance athletes on building a training program that keeps them from falling victim to injury–whether soft-tissue injury or chemical injury.
– The similarity between what occurs in athletes and a trauma patients?
– Inflammation is the common response; inflammation drives healing, but it can also drive further injury
– Why the events prior to an injury or “niggle” are often the true root of the cause
– Do we ever want some trauma, i.e. micro trauma, as a way to build and adapt on the quest to become fit for our sport?
– Should you train through pain, niggles and injuries (Tawnee brings up cases when athlete still raced when injured and accomplished great feats or had to bow out)
– The mental side of dealing with injury/sports trauma, recovery and the need to keep going and not give up
– What kind of recovery in training is needed to avoid serious soft tissue or chemical injuries
– The “less is more” approach vs. “no pain no gain”
