CROSSFIT

Crossfit is a sport that requires very specific body mechanics in order to perform in the correct ways. When someone participates in Crossfit without knowing the proper body mechanics for doing so, it puts an increased amount of strain on the joints, muscles, and other parts of the body that must compensate for the incorrect movements.

That’s why at Wisconsin Orthopedic Physical Therapy, we are committed to providing the proper training and movement patterns for crossfit athletes to help prevent future injuries and enhance sports performance.

Physical therapy can teach the proper techniques for performing Crossfit, so you can ease the stress on your body and enhance your abilities. Request an appointment with one of our crossfit trainers today!

Taking preventative measures

As any athlete may know, nothing is worse than having to put your training on hold due to an unexpected injury. That’s why physical therapy for prevention is so important – your physical therapist can help you fix problem areas before they become an issue.

Your physical therapist will be able to assess your movements during the sport and identify any improper techniques. This will help in anticipating injuries before they occur and providing solutions for avoiding them.
