Maximizing Your CrossFit Routine

Date: January 2, 2017 | Time: 2:37am | Posted By: Dr. Shapiro @ Complete Spine Solutions

To get the most out of each rep, set, and workout, we need to work efficiently, using proper form to prevent injury. We seem to be laser focused on the form of our reps, but forget to consider our underlying structure, and what can be done to improve it, for higher performance and lower injury rate.

Did you know, there is a normal range for spinal structure? If your structure is within the normal range, you have the best potential to perform at your competitive best. If the internal mechanics of your frame, spine and pelvis are off, this not only weakens your body, but increases the risk for abnormal wear of your joints and increases the likelihood of injury.

There is one safe, gold-standard for measuring body frame mechanics: standing radiographic studies. When taken and marked correctly by a biomechanical expert, these x-rays can not only assess premature degeneration, but can help a biomechanical expert to design a structural improvement protocol to slow or stop the degeneration. This will help you enjoy Less Pain, More Gain, both in and out of the gym.

Working with Complete Spine Solutions can help you get more out of your workout. Would you like to:

  • Improve reaction time?
  • Restore muscle range of motion?

CrossFit Injury Prevention

Date: December 26, 2016 | Time: 2:33am | Posted By: Dr. Shapiro @ Complete Spine Solutions

CrossFitters are some of the greatest compensators. For example, when an athlete's pec muscles become too tight, this will rotate the whole shoulder complex internally and shut down the activation of the scapula along the rib cage. In turn, the rotator cuff muscles, which are designed for specificity, will increase their work output along with the traps and other associated neck muscles. The athlete in you will keep performing until something breaks down.

Yes, exercise is taking care of your body, but you also need to address the muscles, nerves, and joints that are used during movements. You need to take care of the machine that keeps you moving. When your body is not balanced and/or muscles are not firing correctly, this predisposes you to not only poor performance, but injury as well.

Think about your car. You get the oil changed and tires rotated regularly. Why would you not take similar care of your body? Complete Spine Solutions ensures that your body is well balanced, vertebrae are aligned, and muscles are firing correctly, so that you can function optimally, in and out of the gym.

Working with Complete Spine Solutions can help you get more out of your workout. Would you like to:

  • Improve reaction time?
  • Restore muscle range of motion?
  • Decrease pain and recovery time?
  • Increase the amount of weight lifted and reps performed?

A More Efficient CrossFit Workout

Date: December 19, 2016 | Time: 1:24pm | Posted By: Dr. Shapiro @ Complete Spine Solutions

CrossFit trains the body to function optimally and efficiently as a unit. The more effectively your body functions, the better your body performs. What controls all the functions of the body, including the muscles? Your nervous system.

When the nervous system is functioning optimally, it allows your muscles to perform at their best. Your body and nervous system is a complex integrated system that instinctively repairs and adapts itself. When one area of your body becomes injured or shuts down, everything in your body compensates for that injury. These breakdowns make the body less efficient.

Our brain is the master controller for our whole bodies. The brain sends out signals to the rest of the body via the nervous system. The bones of the spine, the vertebrae, protect our nerves and our spinal cord, but with training, trauma, gravity or other health-compromising activities, our spine can shift out of its normal position. This in turn puts stress on the spinal cord and the immediate surrounding nerves, and indirectly affects the muscles and organs down the line from that region. Research demonstrates that this added stress could cost your body efficiency, strength, endurance, reaction time, and less than optimal health.

Are you getting the most from your workouts? Are you getting the most power from your muscles? Imagine if you could be stronger, faster and more efficient!

Working with Complete Spine Solutions can help you get more out of your workout. Would you like to:

  • Improve reaction time?
  • Restore muscle range of motion?
  • Decrease pain and recovery time?
  • Increase the amount of weight lifted and reps performed?
  • Achieve greater symmetry in muscle build and performance?
  • Heal from current injuries and prevent future ones?

This patient (holding the flowers she had delivered to our office) was getting ready to end her horseback riding career...until she found that by improving her spine mechanics, she could again get on and off her horse by herself and ride for miles and miles, pain free. She is looking forward to continuing to ride for years to come. The flowers are one of several bouquets she has send us in appreciation for her outstanding results. http://ow.ly/i/kEfGZ
