If you’re genuinely interested in how to do more to help clients improve their mental health, then here’s how you can use Injury Hacking to do it.
The thing is, most people suffering with long-term, intermittent, or low-level back pain are anxious, over-cautious, and resigned to their pain and when clients feel like their pain is something that they just have to live with, they stop aspiring to be better and stay focused on managing their “bad back” (or whatever).
You need to know this because you can use Injury Hacking to show them a different point of view and give them hope, which means that you can help them achieve more than they thought possible.
We just need to follow the 4R’s of Kick-Assery…
1 – Recognise
Emotional and physical stress are the two biggest risk factors for injury. Our clients find it much easier to tell us when they have physical pain than they do when they’re struggling emotionally.
The thing is, pain doesn’t just magically appear out of nowhere (even though it might seem like it), it’s like a pressure cooker of tension in the body that build and builds until one-day, our clients do something tiny, like turn their head quickly, or pick a pen up off the floor, and BOOM! Pain strikes.
Injury Hackers know that the body has loads of tell-tale signs that indicate that this tension is building… and the best thing is, we don’t even need to know whether it’s emotional or physical stress that’s causing it!
When we recognise those early signs, the sense of relief from our clients is huge.
They feel seen by someone who clearly knows what they’re talking about and that makes them feel safe in our care
2 – Reality
When our clients have a “bad back”, they usually fall into one of two camps… either they don’t know what to do, or they think they’ve tried everything already and it’s not possible that anything else could help.
And when all the solutions stem from the same viewpoint, it’s likely to be true.
Fortunately, Injury Hackers look at the problem from a whole different angle… which makes the complex seem simple, and the “problem” feel much more manageable.
This gives clients hope, and that’s a powerful weapon in the fight for improving mental health
3 – Roadmap
When clients feel lost or like they’re at a dead-end, they feel stuck.
And when it comes to trying to manage a bad back while they’re training, they can easily feel frustrated, disappointed, and like they’re letting everyone down if they can’t give 100% effort.
As an Injury Hacker, you can work with them to develop a plan and show them how they can move forwards.
This helps clients feel in control of what’s happening in their own bodies again.
This is HUGE when it comes to improving mental health because most people just want to do something to help themselves
4 – Reassurance
One of the biggest factors in declining mental health is a feeling of isolation or loneliness.
When our clients have tried everything to manage their pain, they’ve been told by our healthcare system that either their pain isn’t bad enough, or there’s nothing else that can be done, our clients feel like they are on their own with their problems.
Injury Hackers can show them that that’s not true – and even better, they can’t do any of the movements wrong!
Having a trainer who understands is one thing, but having one that can actually HELP when everyone else’s attempts have failed is even better!
Bottom line? You should never underestimate the power of your Injury Hacking skills!
