Katherine and Michelle Plouffe: High Performance Program

Posted and categorized under article

Injuries aren’t fun, but they give you a lot of perspective. I have had to learn to focus on my long term health and not just constantly playing through pain. Taking a couple days off, for example, is hard for me to do because I feel like I’m letting my team down sitting on the sidelines. But I am learning that’s the best thing I could be doing if I want to help my team late into the season. I don’t have an off-season, and it’s definitely become more important to manage the rest that I’m able to get. Working with the team at The Base has been great because I’m able to correct my body to be able to keep playing when rest is just not possible. Rehab and injury prevention are just the tip of the iceberg at The Base. The providers and trainers are always willing to meet the needs of our team training schedule and work with us to determine what is best for us individually, based on how our bodies feel. The staff are just great people! I can’t say enough about them. The Base team genuinely want their athletes to succeed and be the best they can be; whatever feat they are trying to accomplish.

Being injured has impacted every part of my training. Through this experience I’ve learned a lot about my body and without the injury I may have never found The Base It has been a blessing in disguise. I think now I am more aware of what my body needs and how it feels. I’m learning when to take it easy and when to push through something. The Base has been amazing for me. They are totally on board with getting me healthy in the most reputable way possible. They have worked with and around my schedule, which has been all over the place depending on team training schedules. I love that they work with me not just for a quick fix but making sure that I am committed to making changes that will help my playing career and life in the long run!
