When you train hard and push your body to its limits you’ll probably experience some pain and discomfort from time to time. This can come from a lot of things, but if you’re not moving perfectly at all times (which no one can do) then you may have to do some extra work to keep things moving and feeling great.
Here’s a look at a chiropractor session with CrossFit Games champ Rich Froning. Rich moves very well and is very strong, but he still has issues he can’t fix himself at times. When you have tried all of the mobility and recovery strategies you know and you’re still experiencing discomfort, then you may need to go see a professional. Whether it’s a massage therapist, chiropractor, or physical therapist, there is probably someone that can help get you moving and feeling well again.
Check out the video with Rich and his chiropractor. They discuss how his knee got bad and how they approached the recovery for it. Finding the underlying issue can be tricky sometimes, so if your knee hurts the problem could be with your hips or glutes. This is where seeing a professional therapist can help determine the root cause. If you are rolling on a lacrosse ball every day and not seeing any permanent changes, it may be time to try something else. Please ask a coach if you have questions and if we can’t answer we will point you to someone that does.
