Dealing with CrossFit injuries?

Here are the top 6 reasons CrossFit athletes need to see us:

  1. Your Shoulder Mobility is, Well, Not Good – Sure, you can adapt and get through the workouts, but you still can’t lockout in the overhead position without bending the elbow or overextending your back.
  2. Your Thoracic Mobility is Non-Existent – Yeah you can get through kipping pull-ups, but your momentum is through the hips and shoulders are taking a beating.
  3. You Have a Six-Pack BUT – It doesn’t matter because you’re not able to stabilize your spine while underload.
  4. Your Squat Is Mediocre – You have some pinching in the hip and your foot is pointing backwards, but at least your slaying the weight!
  5. Your Ankles Don’t Move – Walking with a bunch of stiff bricks on your feet, but they get you through!
  6. Your Doctor – and Everyone Under the Sun – Says CrossFit Is Bad For You – If you lift more than 20#, you’re going to “herniate a disc!”
  • Are you a CrossFit athlete that struggles with CrossFit injuries to the shoulders, hips, or back? Can’t achieve full overhead mobility or sit in the bottom position of a squat without pain?
  • Are you frustrated that no matter how many Google searches and YouTube exercises you do, you can’t get rid of the pain?
  • Are you frustrated that treatments like massage therapy, chiropractic care, or even other physical therapy clinics, haven’t worked?
  • Are you having trouble keeping up with your workouts or pushing through the pain?
  • Are you annoyed that the only thing your doctor, brother, mom, and dog says will help is if you “stop doing CrossFit?”

Many people in Green Bay suffer unnecessarily with CrossFit injuries because they’re told:

  • Just “rest it” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…)
  • It’s “normal” to have shoulder, hip, or back pain with CrossFit. It’s a rite of passage!
  • If you take some pills or throw on the latest and greatest knee support sleeves everything will be fine.
  • Rest, injections, or surgery are the only options for your pains.

The truth is:

  • Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again, you’ll still be suffering from those CrossFit injuries you had before (I bet you’ve already experienced it!)
  • It’s not normal to get shoulder, hip, or back pain as you increase weight!
  • Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.
  • Prescription pain pills, injections and surgery are not the best options – they’re just the only option your physician/surgeon can offer you.

At MVMT Performance & Rehabilitation We Specialize in Helping the CrossFit Athletes Move Better and Recover from Injuries Faster, Keeping Them in The Box, Pain (And Medication) Free.

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you experience a CrossFit injury. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as:

  • A family member tells you to give up CrossFit all together because it’s “bad for your body.”
  • A colleague mentions going to a massage therapist, chiropractor, or another “traditional-styled” physical therapist.
  • Dr. Google and the “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise
  • All while the doctor tells you to take this medication 5x/day for 8-weeks.

It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices…what will happen if you don’t make the right one?

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

When It Comes to Solving Something Like Pain During CrossFit WODs…

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive,” most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your CrossFit injuries and keeping them from ever coming back.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.

At MVMT Performance & Rehabilitation we’ve created a simple three-step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 – We Want to Listen to Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 7 minutes (yes, that is the average doctors visit) before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, volume-based, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of CrossFit athletes, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 – Find Out WHY Your Low-Back Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, stop CrossFit all together, take those medications, or get that surgery.

Sometimes those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every CrossFit injury is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at MVMT Performance & Rehabilitation is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only do your CrossFit injuries go away, they STAY AWAY! We do not believe in putting band-aids on your symptoms, or practicing cookie-cutter medicine.

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if performance physical therapy and sports medicine in Green Bay is right for you. That’s why we created a free 30-minute discovery visit. (Yes! That means the first 30-minutes are ON US!)

Our 30-minute discovery visits are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the discovery visit you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 – Get Rid of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to:

  • Get back to snatching without fear of shoulder pain coming back
  • Be able to get into the bottom position of an overhead squat and not have low-back pain
  • Perform kipping pull-ups without relying on the momentum at your hips to get you through it
  • Have the shoulder mobility to transition from your hang position to a front rack without pain

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle – even if they feel stuck right now!

Bennett, hockey athlete

I would highly recommend MVMT! I was struggling with ankle strength/mobility issues and low back pain. I noticed a difference after the first session. I have had these issues for a number of years and have tried other places, but did not feel much of a difference. MVMT went above and beyond to make sure I would be ready for my season. Trevor is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help with whatever issues you are experiencing.

Bennett W. Hockey Athlete

After two back surgery I had to do something different then the standard PT. Trevor was able to get me moving and gave me exercises that worked for me and incorporated a stretching plan that has me moving and pain free for the first time in years. He also helped build a mindset that I can do these things again safely and not have to worry about my back failing, if I do the exercises correctly. It feels like I have my life back for the first time in two years.

crossfit athlete, physical therapy

I’ve always been physically active - both from a fitness perspective as well as in my overall lifestyle. Being an active older adult is important to me but also comes with its aches and pains and joint replacements. I’m 67 years old and do CrossFit, hunt, hike, yard work, bike and more. Trevor has helped keep me in the game. He quickly assessed how my body was and wasn’t working effectively. He customized targeted exercises aimed at strengthening where I was weak and increasing my range of motion where I was tight. All that in a very fun and engaging way. Trevor’s great.
