You’re a high-intensity person. That’s why you chose CrossFit, putting your endurance and power to the test. But sometimes, an athlete may not realize where his or her body’s limits are until they’ve pushed too far, and then you’re left with an injury. While you may be tempted to push through an injury rather than rest, it’s important to get proper medical attention as soon as possible in order to avoid future orthopaedic problems.
Overuse injuries are among the more common types seen in CrossFitters. This is due to the sport’s defining characteristic: sustaining high levels of intensity for a long time. Beating these types of injuries can be tricky because it takes time and self-discipline, but we know that you have the determination to commit to your recovery plan. When you work with Andrews Sports Medicine, you’ll have access to some of the top sports medicine doctors.
