Sports Injuries

Category: Defense system

Back to conditions

Boxing, football, hockey and many more sports don't always show as injuries but the repetitive impact can create disorganization, especially if you did not see it coming or could not brace before the impact. You may not be "injured" but the nervous system could be disorganized.

Questions & Answers (2)

Question 1:

"I play professional sports and had a bad injury some years ago. My trainers, physiotherapist, and chiropractor helped me get back to playing but it took 2 months. I was good for about a year, and then one day while taking out the garbage (which wasn’t heavy at all), the same symptoms of the injury returned. Because the relapse didn’t happen while I was playing, my contract was not renewed. I am doing my best to strengthen the area but the stability only lasts a few days at best. This has had an effect on me psychologically and I just want my body to be stable enough to enjoy sports with my kids and for a hobby, not even professionally anymore. Could N.O.T. have any answers for me?"

Answer 1:

If you read my book “Let It Flow” and watch my videos, you will understand how everything is connected in the body. There are many good techniques and therapies, such as the ones that you used after your injury the first time. You were already likely already in disorganization neurologically, even before the injury you had. Then the injury caused more neural disorganization, the body was in an even more heightened state of defense, and thus the individual therapies only helped you for awhile. Nobody first corrected and reorganized the electrical circuits of your body, which are responsible for stimulating your muscles to work in synchronicity, regardless of the body position or amount of load or stress. One day while taking out the garbage, your body happened to say “that’s enough! I can’t hide or compensate anymore for this problem that happened long ago. Neural Organization Technique is a primary treatment modality for any athlete, professional or not, who is seriously concerned about performing at his or her best!

Question 2:

"I am an athlete and notice that during my baseball, tennis and golf swings, my body always pulls a little at the end of the swing, causing me to hook the ball and not get as much power in my swing. Sometimes muscles in either my neck or my low back will spasm after the swing. What does this tell you?"

Answer 2:

It tells me that your nervous system is misfiring and that your structure or frame is possibly out of alignment. More than likely you have a gait fault and/or a scoliosis ( see videos back pain and on scoliosis). This can be corrected, returning to your optimum game performance.

Nicolas Stracini - USA

I am so shocked at what actually took place.  I was totally unprepared for what you said to me, that the pain in my legs was doing something for me.  I thought you must be mistaken; I did not see this as being the truth.

I was feeling really uncomfortable with the fact that I was not a ski instructor anymore and that I was not kayak guiding anymore.  I have done these careers, kayak guiding for 11 years and ski instructing for 20 years.  Now I was struggling with the feeling of disappointment in myself that it was over.

I needed an excuse for ending it all and that is what the leg pain was about.

Honestly, the pain is completely gone and I am laughing like crazy.

I realize now that I need to be more comfortable with myself.  I know who I am, I am achieving highly in other areas now and I feel a new freedom about accepting it.

You have completely surprised me; I am so happy you wouldn’t believe it.

Words cannot tell you how thankful I am to you.
