Chiropractic and Crossfit: what you need to know

In recent years, there has been a recent boom in a fitness regimen developed by Coach Greg Glassman, otherwise known as Crossfit. Known for its constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement, it sets itself apart as a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence in each of ten recognized fitness domains:

  • Cardiovascular and Respiratory Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Coordination
  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Accuracy

The Crossfit empire has exploded to become one of the biggest brands in the industry and gained a cult-like status among followers, renowned for its communal aspect in working out. However, because the CrossFit workouts are typically done in a group setting, the peer competition helps elevate the intensity of the workout, and sometimes beyond the fitness level of participants, thereby resulting in injury. Augusta GA Chiropractors Georgia Clinic of Chiropractic are all to familiar with CrossFitters over-pushing themselves to the point of injury. In addition to overexertion, many may be prone to performing the workouts with poor form, further imposing injury to joints and muscles. Just like other chiropractors specializing in athletic rehabilitation, they have customized a treatment protocol for their CrossFit patients, addressing their injuries at hand for maximum recovery in a shorter time period so that they can return to the gym without losing the momentum they have gained through training.

CrossFit and Chiropractic are both lifestyle philosophies with the ultimate goal of maximizing the potential of the human body. The two philosophies are mutually beneficial. Regular chiropractic care improves the performance of the CrossFit athlete while CrossFit workouts help sustain the benefits of chiropractic care. By combining the two programs, the amount of injuries suffered by athletes can be reduced, as well as improvement in the health and performance of communities can be achieved.
