Physiotherapist Chris Tack of All Powers Physio pens his latest piece 'Punching Through The Pain: How Do MMA Athletes Fight Through Injury?', with a particular focus on Junior dos Santos following his win over Cain Velasquez at UFC on Fox, despite being on crutches just ten days before.

Ever wondered how guys can be hurt and carry on? Is it just heart? Warrior spirit?

Find out here:

www.yourmma.tv/training/details.asp/c/2/id/102/punching-through-the-pain-mma-fighting-through-injury.htm

It's a fair old read so set aside a few minutes, but informative and definitely taught me a few things!

Uh, this is a lot like the magazine articles they used to put out on bodybuilders and football players.

In truth they use tape and drugs. But the articles probably talk about natural stuff and will power, lol.

Football players get injected with cortisone and lidocaine injections and things like nubain and other types of opioids. 

For ammys, don't buy into this. Rest and do active recovery stuff. You can't do what the genetically advantaged phenoms do. HTH.
