“What if we live in a culture obsessed over exercise and diet, a culture where medicine and exercise science are know for world advances, but a culture in a state of severe physical decline where obesity, heart disease, back pain and injuries are ironically becoming more prevalent?”
Aggressive physical training cannot change fundamental mobility and stability problems without also introducing a degree of compensation and increased risk of injury. Training poor movement patterns reinforces poor quality and creates greater risk of injury. Sounds familiar, eh?…..”Everyone grab your PVC pipe so we can go over form.”
If movement is dysfunctional, all things built on that dysfunction might be flawed, compromised or predisposed to risk even if disguised by acceptable levels of skill or performance. Poor movement patterns demonstrate increased injury risk with activity. We also need to understand good movement patterns don’t guarantee reduced injury risk. Once fundamental movement is managed, other factors like strength, endurance, coordination and acquisition of skill also play a role in prevention. Movement comes first!
In todays health care we spend almost 4 billion dollars on back pain alone, and another 2 billion on other musculo-skeletal injuries. We are a society obsessed with fads and quick fixes, but unfortunately it leads mostly into dead ends. Individuals who don’t succeed usually give up because it’s too hard, too time consuming, or worse become injured and need to end their journey towards health and well being. Do you know most individuals gain an average of 18lbs after an injury, become depressed, and no longer feel positive about their future? What can we do here at CrossFit Roseville to reduce the risk of injury, and prevent us from going down that negative spiral?
My name is Danny Panella, and I have worked in the field of outpatient orthopedic Physical Therapy for about 12 years. I have been given this wonderful opportunity from CrossFit Roseville to pass on some of what I know as a PT onto you, an elite group of athletes who take risks with their body each WOD. Hopefully you will join me and the CrossFit Roseville Team on Thursday March 28, 2013 at CrossFit Roseville’s box for the first of a series of in-services. Each session will focus on a different joint or region of the body including the shoulder and upper torso, lumbar spine and pelvis, and knee and ankle. We will discuss biomechanics, posture, stability, mobility, and some key components of injury, injury prevention, and injury rehabilitation in order to keep you in your sport versus on the side line. This will be an open and relaxed forum, so please feel free to ask any and all questions. I hope to see you there.
