There are basically two types of injuries: acute injuries and overuse injuries. Acute injuries are usually the result of a single, traumatic event. Common examples include wrist fractures, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations, and hamstring muscle strain. While overuse injuries are more common in sports than acute injuries, they are subtle and usually occur over time, making them challenging to diagnose and treat. They are the result of repetitive micro-trauma to the tendons, bones, and joints. Common examples include tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder, and youth pitching elbow, runner’s knee, jumper’s knee, Achilles tendinitis, and shin splints.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENING
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a pre-participation screening tool designed to identify compensatory movement patterns that are indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that causes reduced performance.
As from September BARE KNUCKLE CROSSFIT will be launching its own injury prevention system. By addressing and tackling postural issues every Thursday and individually with a given specific program assigned by Evangelos Nikolaou.P.T.MSc.
- Improve functional and athletic performance
- Reduce the potential for training and sports injuries
- Provide a simple grading system to assess movement
- Identify physical imbalances or weakness
- Allow exercise professionals to create a system for functional exercise.
