What you need to know about knee pain
 
Hey guys,

I'm a crossfit athlete, coach and am finishing up my doctorate in physical therapy.

I love crossfit, but if its not done properly it can cause some injury. I started up a website to help crossfit and strength athletes troubleshoot their pain and help with injury prevention. I recently finished up an article series about knee pain. I made a few videos explaining knee, hip and foot movement and added some practical exercises to help prevent knee pain. I put the links below, Check it out!

If you enjoyed the articles or have anything to add or suggestions let me know. I love this sport and think one of the only complaints about crossfit is the risk of injury if done poorly. I really think if we spread some knowledge it can go a long way in making the sport safer.

Thanks Guys,
Dan Pope

Are the links W/F/S?

Hey Elizabeth, I honestly don't know what W/f/s means. Its my website. Safe for work, no viruses, gimics etc.

Work/Family/Safe


Dan, I have an awful hip slide and have started having severe knee pain (on lateral side of knee that caves in).

I will try some of these now and when I can finally squat without pain will incorporate some others :)

Hopefully that can give you some help. Please be careful and work with a professional though, especially considering you are having so much pain at the moment. A lot of these exercises can be doing more harm then good if you're having acute pain with movement. Once the pain has died down and you've worked a bit with someone who can really examine your situation these would be good exercises to work with.
