“Sports Injury Recovery is 75% Psychological and 25% Physiological”

-Hershman, Nicholas &Thompson

When you experience a mental/emotional or physical sports injury-surgery you create mal adaptive neuro pathways within the brain-body as a survival reaction associated with the conscious (can remember) and unconscious (your 5 senses input) memory imprinting process. Therefore, to fully heal your brain-body from ANY mental/emotional or physical trauma to reach or regain your full sports performance potential you must use Performance Neuro Training to de-condition the mal adaptive neuro pathways from your past negative sports performance experiences/injuries/traumas so you will only be using your conditioned positive sports performance neuro pathways from your sports specific training.

  • Assist your brain-body in clearing-resolving-healing past mental and physical injuries-traumas-stressors.
  • Allow your brain-body to de-condition the mal adaptive neuro pathways your brain-body creates-conditions when you experience sports  injuries-trauma-surgeries. After the traumatic mental and physical memories are released from your brain and body you completely heal from the trauma which results in expanded sports performance.
  • Clear all your “What Ifs” or “Worst Case Scenarios” associated with the perfect execution of a dynamic sports performance.
  • After your brain and body are fully healed your brain has the capability and as neuroplasticity suggests to re associate past positive sports performance neuro pathways which had been blocked by the sports trauma stopping the maladaptive neuro pathway from being traveled.
  • Similar to personally experienced traumas, when you see another athlete experience an injury-crash or any other negative outcome during competition you experience secondary trauma which creates mal-adaptive pathways too. So you must also reprocess and release these thoughts to be fully on point during competition.
  • Mentally condition a “zone” or “no mind” eye gaze position to assist you in getting into a positive flow state or  the “zone” for sports competitions.

SPORTS TEAMS & GROUPS

  • Team Performance Neuro Training Clinics & Intensives de-condition your past negative sport injuries and poor sports performance experiences as a team.
  • Team Performance Neuro Training Clinics & Intensives  condition a “zone” or “flow” state eye position so you can access your peak sports performance neuro muscular pathways when the pressure is on during game play-competitions-contests.
  • Team mental conditioning to give you tools and techniques to guard against mal-adaptive coping behaviors which can lead to mental health issues

Spectator (vicarious) criticism on practice or competition performance Not properly warming up muscles prior to practice or competition
Any past self-identified poor competition performance Not stretching or utilizing myo-fascial release techniques (Foam rolling or “trigger point’ stick use) prior to practice or competition
Loss of a family member, friend, teammate or even family pet Not stretching or utilizing myo-fascial release techniques (Foam rolling or “trigger point” stick use) following practice or competition
