Creating the Whole Athlete

Healing the Mind and Body in Sport and in Life

PHILOSOPHY:

Dr. Miele believes that healing the mind and body as a whole is a necessary practice for all athletes in order to perpetuate success. Young, amateur and professional athletes all fall under the same psychological challenges just with different intensities. My belief for athletes in training and injured athletes in physical therapy is that they must build the total self, which incorporates not just the physical aspect of building strength, but building their mental strength. In boxing, there is a saying take on the body and the head will fall… In training and competing it can be seen almost in the same context if the head falls due to mental weakness than the body will fail. I believe that today’s young athletes some times over train and take on stresses that can not only break them down physically, but mentally as well which can lead to burn out. Anxiety can cause great stress to the body and induce unnecessary pain and possible injury.
