Treatment will likely include a combination of manual therapy to relieve pain, exercises and stretches to improve range of motion and injury prevention advice. We also will correct any biomechanical imbalances that may be contributing to your injuries, such as poor posture or incorrect lifting technique.

Are injuries more common in CrossFit?
The risk of injury in CrossFit training is comparable to distance running, Olympic weightlifting, rugby, track and field, football, ice hockey, soccer, or gymnastics. However, while CrossFit is relatively a safe sport, participants within their first training year and those who train fewer than three days a week have a higher risk of injury.
What are the most common injuries CrossFitters suffer from?
The shoulder, rotator cuff, back, ankle, knee, and elbow are CrossFit’s most commonly injured areas. If your CrossFit injury isn’t resolved with conservative treatment, you may require physiotherapy. Contact Solidus today to book your first consultation.
What are the dangers of CrossFit?
According to a study done on Crossfit, the most significant danger of Crossfit comes from participants pushing themselves too hard. While this is not uncommon due to the intensity and competitiveness of Crossfit, it can lead to form breakdown and injuries. Crossfitters should always be aware of their limits and not attempt exercises beyond their current fitness/skill level.
How long does it take to recover from physiotherapy?
This varies depending on the injury and how well you respond to treatment. However, most Crossfitters report a significant reduction in pain and improved function from soft tissue damage between six and eight weeks. If you have an orthopaedic injury, it may take longer to heal. In general, we will work with you until you have regained your pre-injury level of function.
Why choose Solidus?
While we recognise that injury rehabilitation is paramount, we see our role as going beyond just treatment. Our team is passionate about educating our patients about their injuries, and work to make you an overall better athlete. By incorporating strength training, corrective exercises and joint mobilisation techniques, we help to reduce your risk of injury and improve performance.
