The trauma of an injury in sport can lead to long term problems even after the the physical problem has resolved
The fear of further injury can lead to a lack in confidence and hesitancy in a players performance. The memory of the injury can lead to a pattern of anxiety and avoidance which can worsen over time unless it is dealt with effectively. The programme at High Performance CBT starts with an analysis of the problem and then puts the right techniques in place to overcome the issue.
