Having developed a passion for the game at a younger age, Sotir spent most of his youth days in pain suffering from a lower back injury while playing. Through various years of attending different Physical Therapy services for treatment of Spondylolisthesis of L5-S1, the pain continued to persist. The pain became a part of the game.
It wasn't until his graduate year of college that Sotir finally relieved himself of the back pain while playing. Taking a different approach from the traditional PT exercises, Sotir was able to overcome his back pain by utilizing various pain principles, mental imagery, postural restoration concepts, and intense training.
His long painful journey inspires him daily to share his knowledge with the youth athletes who suffer through similar injuries. Injuries can be physically and mentally daunting on younger athletes. One size does not fit all.
Don't let an injury detach you from the love of the game.
