Since starting a new page in my career at Evolutio, I’ve had the honour of attending a mid-season footy training night at Richmond Central Football Club. My role there is to assess any injuries that the athletes are carrying and clear them for return to sport, advise them to rest or to seek further management.
I’m going to come straight out and say it. Olympic lifting isn’t my forte. As an athlete halfway between a mesomorph and ectomorph with chicken legs after years of squatting, Olympic lifting is still the joker to my batman. Apparently, physics states that true mesomorphs and endomorphs are going to be naturally better at oly lifts, considering primarily that they have a lower centre of mass which increases their overall stability and have to move the weight a shorter distance from the ground up. Thanks physics...
Impingement Syndromes of the Wrist
Dorsal wrist impingement is the most common injury to a CrossFitters, Olympic Weightlifter or Gymnasts wrist. The injury results from the repetitive combination of hyperextension (extending or straightening the joint beyond its normal range of motion) and axial loading, (placing force on the joint or bone).
The injury occurs when the dorsal (back) edge of the radius impinges on (strikes) the wrist bones. This individuals pain can intensify such as during a handstand. When injury occurs, the client feels pain and tenderness on the backside of the wrist. The pain usually subsides after training has ended.
Our Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and our Remedial Massage therapists are all CrossFit Coaches trained in Crossfit Injuries. We are unique and unlike any other practice. Don't go to someone that has just heard about CrossFit. If you’ve got a CrossFit injury, book a time and location that’s convenient for you now!
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Our clinic providing Physiotherapy, and Remedial Massage in Richmond is located at 11/3 Bromham Place, Richmond.
