A form of high intensity interval training, CrossFit is a strength and conditioning workout that is made up of functional movement performed at a high intensity level. These movements are actions that you perform in your day-to-day life, like squatting, pulling, pushing and so much more.
Phoenix Osteopractic Physical Therapy can help prevent serious injuries and vastly speed up your recovery if needed. Through our Mobile Concierge Therapy, we can easily travel to your location and provide treatment.
As CrossFit physical therapists and movement experts, we are perfectly positioned to address the faulty movement patterns and poor body mechanics that may be causing your pain, injury or weakness. Phoenix Osteopractic Physical Therapy understand that “CrossFit” is not the problem, and they do not want you to stop doing what you love. Instead, they can offer you the following tools and services to be ready for your next WOD!
We are highly skilled at treating common crossFit injuries such as low back pain or strain, shoulder pain, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, knee pain and more. However, pain can be really deceiving! Maybe you spent time online researching knee pain because it was hurting while squatting, but when you see our us, they may quickly determine that your pain is actually coming from weak gluteus and not your knees at all. A proper diagnosis by a CrossFit physical therapist is critical to long term recovery.
Maybe you can already deadlift 300lbs, but you’d be shocked at how heavy a two pound dumbbell can feel when you’re isolating weaker supporting muscles. A physical therapist can create a series of exercises designed specifically to address the weaknesses that are contributing to your issue. We will help you re-learn movement patterns so you can remain injury free. They will work with you to create a custom plan for injury management and CrossFit workouts. Modifications should come from a professional who understands your full medical background instead of being a last minute decision right before the workout.
Physical therapists can quickly uncover imbalances and weaknesses that are really affecting your performance. At CrossFit, we are often performing complicated movements under the stress of a heavy barbell or time clock. There are very few PTs who fully understand the specifics of a perfect clean, squat or pull-up. With a full Rogue rig, bars and plates in the clinic, our physical therapists at Iron PT can clearly breakdown, demonstrate and cue each movement pattern so you are confident and ready to head back to the box.
