Why Work With Me?
Like many of you currently visiting this site, I have been an athlete my entire life, pushing myself year after year to get better and play in higher leagues. Whenever you’re pushing yourself to break unknown barriers you need to take risks. Unfortunately, injury and athletics are fated together.
One of my more memorable experiences happened during summer 3vs3 hockey league. I’ve been working extra hard to be my best for the upcoming year when it happened. An opposing player driving the net from the left side collided with my defenseman. The quickness of play during hockey can only be understood from experience. The next thing I remember is sitting in my butterfly in a daze. There was no pain, only confusion. Upon slowly taking off my helmet, I felt the rush of blood down the side of my head, past my ear, and dripping off my chin. The result of my head being crushed between the goal-post and my defenseman’s hip was an undiagnosed concussion. But why the blood?
The week before I noticed one of the pad’s on the inside of my helmet lost its glue and wouldn’t stay in place. So I took it out and left it in my bag. The pad was in place to protect my skull from the exposed screw. Upon impact of my defenseman’s hip, the screw entered my skull, a scar that still grabs my attention to this day.
