CrossFit and Injury Prevention

I recently interviewed Todd Nief, a CrossFit coach from SouthLoop Strength and Conditioning in Chicago.  It’s posted over at SportsRehabExpert.com on a free page here:  http://www.sportsrehabexpert.com/public/931.cfm?sd=2.  If you’re into CrossFit, or even just thinking about it, you’ll definitely pick up some good tips from Todd.

Teaching the Olympic Lifts, power lifts like the squat and deadlift, and kettlebell lifts are some of the things I enjoy the most about my job.  Unfortunately I also see a lot of athletes, and adults, that get injured performing them. I don’t know that most people understand how complex these lifts can be, and how easily things can go wrong.

So whether you want to incorporate these lifts into your program, or need to recover from injury and get back into hard training, there is no better place to go than Elite Physical Therapy and Sports Performance.

Learn to do these movement correctly and you’ll see some great results!
