The racecar driver says, "I can’t go around those left turns very well."
The mechanic reveals that there’s a kinetic chain issue from steering column to wheel, so either,
a) There is a part that is broken,
b) There is a part that is restricted,
c) The parts move but but there’s a hydraulics leakage or an electrical signal issue from steering.
The car is the volleyball players body. The driver is their will.
The broken parts are bad energy - pain, toxins, inflammation and similar.
The restricted parts are blocked energy - mobility restrictions.
The hydraulics and electrical issues are leaked energy - stability and motor control issues.
The role of the mechanic is to give the driver access to all the cars movements that they want to race how they want.
So, the role of the sports physio in volleyball is to give athletes access to all the movements their coaches want.
Don't jump the gun just yet. Your athletes will mostly ask you to help them get out of pain.
Sometimes they’ll ask you for exercises to help them do something better.
To advance your sports physio career in volleyball, your unique selling position is to NOT miss what you need to find when they come to you for help, from a movement perspective. Plugging a leak doesn't guarantee the steering works. Unblocking hydraulics or spraying a nut with lubricant doesn't guarantee they can go around the bend.
The final point is to be accountable to help your athletes win the race and put your hand up when you're missing something. I'll help you find it, like so many of my teaching colleagues.
