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.

Free Phone Consultation

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!

Mason, professionally hockey athlete

I’m a professional hockey player who was struggling with some knee pain and had no structural damage identified after getting an MRI. Did some manual therapy with our trainer and some basic exercises but nothing seemed to work. Trevor works up by where I train so I reached out. He gave me some exercises that helped while I was away and when I came in he was able to take care of my specific issue. Really enjoyed the dry needling as it seemed to be very helpful with specific issues and releasing the tense in that area; haven’t had any pain since. Really happy with my experience and highly recommend it to all athletes.

Nathain, active gym member

I went in very skeptical but was willing to give anything a chance because I was in so much pain, I thought living with pain would be my new normal. Thankfully, I put my trust in Trevor, it has been ten visits now and the pain is nearly gone, pain I’ve been dealing with for years. I just scheduled my next ten visits and am excited to see where I get. Four months ago I could barely roll out of bed and now Trevor has me doing deadlifts and back squats.

knee pain, sciatica physical therapy

Being a former athlete, coming back from injury is always a challenge. Doing it when you’re older is even harder. You have no team cheering you on, no game that you’re striving to get back for. Just a 40 something trying to get back to the gym to do what they love. Workout! But when I found Trevor at MVMT, he and his wife became my new teammates. Cheering me on and getting me back to where I wanted to be. My first time to visit MVMT, I went in with knee pain that I had for months and the inability to straighten my leg. He suspected meniscus. But after just 2 weeks of cupping, dry needling, and doing “correct” exercises, I was able to straighten my leg and begin knee strengthening. My second visit I was dealing with sciatic nerve pain and loss of feeling. Again, within 2 weeks, I felt so much relief. I have great “teammates” – they are so attentive, knowledgeable, fun, and get you back to where you want to be!! Don’t go another day in pain – join the team!
