HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY DURING MY CROSSFIT SESSION?
Any type of high intensity interval training carries the risk of injury forming. Which is why it is important to use a qualified crossfit coach in your training. Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using cheap neoprene sleeves and braces. Protect your knee joints so you can nail your next slam ball , overhead squat, rope climb or good morning.
HOW TO TREAT A CROSSFIT KNEE INJURY
- We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common crossfit injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
- Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
- Patellar tendonitis. It can generally be prevented by avoiding over-training, noticing fatigue and wearing insoles with impact prevention. Treatment can include a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used. Rarely does this condition require surgery.
- Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a graft of tissue as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. Surgery is often minimally invasive, however it can take time for the tear to heal.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent knee pain.
