Where your injury case is all that matters

How engaging in a team sport helps you heal from injury

Let us say you became injured in a car crash. Fortunately, you will be all right, but the recovery process makes you feel depressed and disconnected from everyone.

Your doctor gives the green light for you to engage in certain team sports, saying that this will improve your mental outlook and help physical healing. How do team sports help?

Lightening your mood

One major benefit of engaging in a team activity is that it releases chemicals in your brain that make you feel more relaxed and happier. With the approval of your doctor, you may go bowling, play softball or enjoy cycling with friends. Getting out and about to engage in some sort of physical activity will improve your physical and mental fitness and allow you some mind-clearing social interaction at the same time.

Staying sharp

Keeping your mental skills in good working order is important not only as you recover from an injury, but as a regular part of your lifestyle as you age. You may consider joining a gym, another opportunity for beneficial social interaction—since a combination of aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercises are especially helpful for maintaining mental acuity.

Reducing stress

When you sustain an injury, it is easy to become stressed and allow negative thoughts to take over your mind. However, physical activity stimulates the production of endorphins, which are natural mood lifters. Engaging in any activity, from jogging down the street to dribbling down the basketball court, reduces stress and replaces negative thoughts with a sunnier, more positive outlook.

Whilst recovering from an injury, getting sufficient sleep is vital. You can depend on sports activities to improve the quality of your slumber; you will fall asleep faster and sleep deeper.

Getting help

If the other driver’s negligence caused the injury you suffered, you can expect to receive compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. However, you can leave insurance matters to your legal team while you concentrate on recovery. With your doctor’s approval, you can begin participating in a team sport and getting back into the swing of things.


  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
