Continuing to CrossFit while you have an acute injury can actually promote healing, Kelly Starrett told participants at a one day seminar at CrossFit Santa Cruz on November 9, 2008. Starrett is the owner of San Francisco CrossFit and a Doctor of Physical Therapy.
“You had a surgery on Friday? Take a couple of days off. See you on Monday,” Starrett said. The key is modifying the program. Grace can be done with dumbbells. If a limb is injured, don’t use it. But keep working out. It’ s best to train through and around injures. Otherwise, the “ghosts” of injuries can remain for years and negatively affect athletic performance.
No matter if you have an disabled shoulder or a bummed knee, CrossFit Moncton will work with you on what you CAN do.
