Re: Heel Not Resting Flat on Ground

Adam,

How has this issue been since starting your stretching/smashing routine? My experience has been that stretching/smashing can help a little, but there is an underlying issue that caused those...

Re: Exertion Headache

Chris,

Did you get your Egoscue menu from a clinic or did you create it on your own?

Re: Plantar Fasciitis

Joe, this sounds like a classic example of misalignment. I mean that your body is using compensating patterns outside of its design. We can get by for a while doing this, but it eventually...

Re: Weaker Left Arm; 10+ year old collarbone injury

Ali,

The short answer is your body has an amazing ability to heal, and something has disrupted that process. In most cases it is misalignment and compensating patterns. Things are out of balance...

Re: Rx Pistols will always be impossible =(

Nicholas,

I feel you on both the pistol and 3rd World Squat Struggles. Flexibility is only part of it. You have some alignment issues with your posture. This means some muscles aren't firing to...

Re: Always getting injured by deadlifting

Michael,

How is your back pain these days? Have you had any luck with physios or self-treatment from some of the books recommended earlier in the thread?

The reason I ask is I found relief from...

Re: Dealing With Pre-Existing Injuries and Chronic Pain

Sean and Alex,

Thanks for the replies!

I should have been clearer in my initial post.

I actually already know from various diagnoses and treatments (X-rays, MRIs, diagnosed labrum tear, shoulder...

Re: What has been your biggest obstacle?

Agree--my biggest obstacle has been pre-existing injuries and lack of knowledge.

Even as a fairly active military guy, my sedentary life was still clearly taking a toll.

Jumping in to CrossFit,...

Re: Tight tight tight

Shawn,

What you said makes a lot of sense--especially if you have been doing a lot of sitting throughout your life (like most of us), tight hip flexors and poor range of motion are going to...

Re: How to fix this imbalance?

Dare,

I see what you're talking about pretty clearly in the video. In both cases that shoulder seems depressed and rolled forward. It seems to me that the right side is doing a LOT of work and the...

Re: knee stability

David,

I had the same problem. Flat and everted feet. Itís not supposed to be that way and itís fixable (regaining your arch naturally and rotating the feet, tibia, and femur back to neutral). ...

Re: Low Back Pain

Phil,

Sorry to hear that, man. I've had some lower back pain too and know it's a drag.

1) What is your day job? Do you tend to sit a lot?
2) Do you have any other joint pain, like in your knees or...

Re: knee stability

David,

This sounds like it could be a case of poor alignment, causing your knee(s) to want to buckle somewhat inward during lunges/box steps. Your knees should want to bend directly out over your...

Re: Shoulder stuff

John,

I see this thread is a little old, but how are your shoulder issues now? I've dealt with very similar issues--mine was a SLAP tear.

Did you ever dislocate your shoulder?

What do you do for...

Re: Shoulder Issue

Sal,

I've also had shoulder issues and know it's no fun. Overhead stuff sometimes causes issues, as well as muscle-ups and ring work. Pain in the same locations you described. I wouldn't be...

Re: Neck Injury

Hi Kyle,

Your problem sounds similar to mine--I've had to deal with spasms in my neck, trap, and rhomboid (left side) when doing overhead CF stuff.

Do you have any history of injuries to your...
