“If someone took 3x the recommended dosage of a medication and experienced side effects, the initial intervention would be to simply adjust the dosage. So why is it that when an athlete overdoses training workload and experiences side effects, we implement gimmicky interventions instead of simply adjusting dosage?” -Dr. Quinn Henoch, Clinical Athlete
How about we take a step back and think about WHY athletes may be coming to us experiencing these “side effects” from their training. Overtraining and overdosing workload may be the problem. Maybe they just need to simply decrease their volume.
We can do all we want in the clinic soft tissue, movement, and pain management wise, but until the actual problem is addressed, we are just treating symptoms.
