    S2E4 | Working With the Injured Athlete with Heidi Armstrong

    Heidi Armstrong is here to talk to us about how she helps athletes overcome the mental fallout of a serious injury. Heidi found her way to the adaptive community after she suffered a competitive mountain biking injury. After the injury and many surgeries, she found herself angry, insufferable at times, and miserable with her new life. Luckily Heidi found herself surrounded by people who were willing to step in when she needed it most and urge her to get help. But when she decided to get help, she didn't even know where to start. Heidi built herself a care-team that helped her find creative outlets as a way to manage her pain and anger. Heidi's revolutionary turn-around to alternative therapy led to one of her therapists referring a fellow injured athlete to her for help, which then turned into several athletes. She then suffered another, severely debilitating injury and found herself talking to others who had also experienced these injuries. When she found she'd have to quit her job post-injury, she decided to explore other opportunities working with injured athletes. In this episode we're talking about: Heidi's research into suffering and injuries What the research taught her about helping injured athletes The commonalities between injured athletes that helped her develop her research How our words and actions affect healing and so much more!
