With Sport Comes Injury

CrossFit is a sport. And as with any sport you run the risk of injury if you play. But there are things you can do to help speed recovery. To prevent yourself from worsening the situation you must STOP when you feel your self get injured. You will know when this happens, and if it does do not continue to work out. To decrease swelling and increase circulation ice the area for at least 10 minutes. Do this every couple hours throughout the day if possible. And do this for the next several days! Don’t sit around, keep moving as much as possible. If you let it heal with out moving, this make it harder to move when it is healed. Unless it is necessary avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication as much as possible (ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin). These medication stop the inflammatory cascade that is responsible for the pain but this is also responsible for healing those muscle you just broke down working out.
