Crossfit Physiotherapy

No other sport or functional fitness activity seems to garner as much attention as Crossfit. Over the years, it has been unfortunately criticised by many health and fitness professionals, due to the high intensity and complexity of movement and the thought that this can lead to unneccesary injuries.

But, did you know that you are more likely to injure yourself undertaking a Zumba classes than training in a supervised CrossFit gym class? That was the finding of a recent study, which contrasted 100 hours of supervised Zumba Classes to a supervised Crossfit Class.

For those who are unaware, Crossfit is a unique sport defined by Greg Glassman as “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement.”

When it comes to the injuries sustained during Crossfit, it is no surprise that shoulder injuries account for the majority of injuries, followed closely by lower back and knee injuries.

At Move Physiotherapy, our physiotherapists not only have an understanding of Crossfit, but have even been active participants. We have the facilities which allow us to comprehensively assess your movement, your crossfit technique and provide detailed biomechanical analysis in order to rehabilitate your injuries and prevent their recurrence.

Move Physiotherapy works closely with a number of Crossfit athletes, and Crossfit affiliates providing injury prevention and biomechanical assessments for athletes of all ages and abilities. You can follow the link here or at the top of the page to book your appointment online today.
