It’s inevitable that at some point during your fitness journey, you’ll face a setback like a nagging pain or an old injury resurfacing.

When this happens, some people tend to take a break and hope it gets better.

If that works, great! you’re ready to get back into things and start building up again.

However when it’s one of those persistent niggles or a previous issue resurfacing then It can be extremely frustrating and leaves you wondering what to do.

This guide is precisely for these circumstances.

1. What to Do When You Pick Up a Niggle or an Old Injury?

The first step is to let our coaches know. 

We have an experienced team who have likely dealt with similar issues before.  We can suggest exercises to ease any discomfort or recommend alternative exercises to avoid straining the problem area.

Remember, that while our coaches are knowledgeable and have experience, we are not qualified therapists. For a more accurate diagnosis, we highly recommend consulting a physiotherapist, chiropractor, or osteopath.

  1. What’s Next After Seeing a Specialist?

This is crucial. Once you’ve seen a specialist, please ask them to share your diagnosis and recommended course of action with us.

While physios and chiros are excellent at diagnosing and providing initial treatment, the aftercare often involves a basic exercise prescription, which you’ll need to do 3-5 times a day. It’s important to ensure you’re doing it correctly and know how and when to progress.

  1. Should You Stop Training?

Absolutely not, We recommend that you continue your membership. Working with a coach means we can adjust your training to accommodate any niggles. Once we have your diagnosis, we can help guide your rehabilitation and ensure a safe return to exercise.

To support your speedy recovery, we often provide complimentary one-on-one training sessions. This personalised approach ensures you get the attention and guidance you need to get back on track.
