FREE GUIDE Shows You 7 Common Mistake Athletes Frequently Make When They Get Injured

A Personal Message From Sports Injury Specialist, Dr. Matt Longfellow


When a sports injury hits, it’s easy to think “oh it’s just an ache and will go away tomorrow”. Or maybe you assume you just you ran a little too much and it will get better. Even worse, maybe you think “it’s normal” because you’re an athlete…

 Is that how you’re feeling right now?

 If so, you’re not alone. In fact, everyday at Diverge PT & Performance we help athletes in Columbus who feel this way.

You see, with sports injuries, everyone asks us the same questions…

How long will it take to recover from this injury?

Why isn’t this pain going away?

Do I need surgery?

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad information out there that causes people to live with sports injuries for way too long. Here are the most common mistakes we see the people of Columbus making when it comes to athletics...

Mistake #1: Thinking the pain will go away with rest.

Mistake #2: Believing that the pain will be “fixed” with rest, massage and stretching.

Mistake #3: Assuming pain is a “normal” part of being an athlete…

Mistake #4: Believing that since you tried other healthcare professionals (maybe even Physical Therapy) in the past means that it won’t work now.

Mistake #5: Relying on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your pain worse!)

Mistake #6: Getting massages to temporary relieve the pain, only to find it comes back after the massage wears off.

Have you been making these mistakes?

If any of this has happened to you, we want to say “we are sorry”...but remind you that you’re not alone.

In fact, we see people just like you every day. 

And that’s why we’ve created a free guide for you. It goes over “7 Mistakes Athletes Make When They Get Injured And What To Do Instead” (and you can click on the button above to download it).

But maybe you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and really just want to talk to someone about your problem.

Is that you?

If so, then we have a special opportunity for you (one that VERY FEW clinics offer).

We save a limited number of spots each week for time for people who are not sure what to do about their sports injury.

That way, you can tell a professional your story, and get your question answered first, before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.

Does that sound like something you would like to do?

Here’s the most important thing…

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next.

They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your pain isn’t getting any better.

So the next important thing is to take action.

Here are your best options to decide if Physical Therapy is right for you:

Wes, Olympic Weightlifter, Columbus, OH

“I worked with Matt to rehabilitate a leg injury. He was able to diagnose the injury, give me suggestions on pain management, and assist me with exercises to help prevent this injury from reoccurring. He also helped me restructure my training to be able to continue weightlifting while I got better. I would highly recommend Diverge.”


Zach, Olympic Weightlifter, Chicago, IL

“Before working with Matt, I had problems supporting heavier weights over head. Even though I had the strength to power such lifts, it was frustrating not being able to support them and the missed lifts that ensued. As I was not able to support the load with my trunk, the tension fell to my arms and shoulders causing nagging injuries as the forces progressed down the chain. After working with Matt, I found I was able to brace and support loads throughout the entire lift. Matt's teachings have been invaluable to my lifting today! My nagging injuries have subsided and I now have the confidence that once I put the weight over head that it will not be a matter of chance if I make the lift. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants to see progress in their lifts and bulletproof their body.”
