If you have driven on Tchoupitoulas lately, you will notice that some of the warehouses that were abandoned years ago have had a major makeover and have turned into CrossFit gyms. CrossFit is a fitness regimen that includes continuously varied functional movements performed at high intensity. These movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing, and more. The community in CrossFit is a crucial aspect of its’ success because of the competitive nature and comradery.
As you can imagine, the intensity of CrossFit workouts and competitions raises the risks of sports injuries to a high level with some researchers of biomechanics arguing that these risks outweigh any benefits that might be gained in physical fitness. Chiropractic care has become a supplement for those who engage in CrossFit training as a means to minimize injury. Studies have shown that participants in CrossFit training who receive chiropractic training before and after competing have a greater chance to continue competing at a high level. As this sport grows, the demand for chiropractic assistance grows as well.
Chiropractic movement analysis can bring the issues that are normally hidden beneath the surface to light. A chiropractic professional can tell athletes what CrossFit exercise to modify or avoid. These exercises can be tailored to help correct a movement dysfunction for better performance in the future.
