Good Habits

Habits are a very powerful part of our lives. For soccer players, habits are key to being successful as well. Technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills are required to play the game at a high level, but bad habits can sabotage a player who is elite in all of those areas.   Read more!

It's Not Just in Your Head

This May marks Mental Health America's 70th year celebrating  Mental Health Month! Mental health may seem like an out of place topic for a sports medicine blog, however, mental health awareness is a trending topic in the amateur and professional sports communities alike. In fact, researchers at both Drexel University and Kean University, have found that, "nearly 25% of collegiate athletes reported "clinically relevant" levels of depressive symptoms."
Athletes of any age and ability can be impacted by mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression. These symptoms may present themselves in their daily lives as well as during their participation in sports.  This article, chronicles the story of Towson University gymnast, Olivia Lubarsky, as she shares her personal experience with this "hidden epidemic" facing many student athletes. While recovering from a season ending surgery, she began a quest to increase awareness of the need for mental health resources for student athletes. Olivia is the founder of  Your Own Roar, "a   program devoted to eradicating the disparity between how mental illness and physical injury are perceived".  Her blog provides insight to help athletes understanding their mental health.
While Orthopedic ONE's Sports Medicine team cannot diagnose or treat mental health conditions, we recognize the need for athletes to address mental health concerns and recommend seeking professional help should you feel your child is exhibiting symptoms associated with these disorders. If you would like assistance identifying local resources, let us know and we can help recommend specific providers.
