Most of us “crossfitters” know how debilitating shoulder pain can be. From sub acromial pain to labral tears – both of which can take a long time to fix either through physiotherapy, exercise rehabilitation or surgical intervention.
The best strategy for injury rehab? Prevention of injuries through PREhabilitation.
- Strengthen the weaknesses
- Increase movement at the stiff segments
- Gain control where you lack it
Prior to training, especially with load overhead we need to get the shoulder warm and switched on neurally. We should aim to increase all of the aforementioned aspects but not to fatigue. Fatigue prior to training will put us at a greater risk of injury.
