Re: dizzyness, shakyness, and low lying headache...need some advise

I fully support the use of psychiatric medications when it's appropriate, but in this case, it seemed more like a GP just trying to diagnose something without necessarily really knowing what was...

Re: dizzyness, shakyness, and low lying headache...need some advise

For me, it doesn't matter how well or clean I eat, if I don't sleep, I'm useless in the gym. I think that stress and a lack of sleep are the problem.

I'm not surprised a GP just wrote out a...

Re: Supraspinatus Tear

I tore my supraspinatus muscle a few years ago. I didn't really miss any time, though I reduced my workouts to 3 days a week since my legs could only handle so much.

My tear was in a strange place,...

Re: You got enough tape on there?

I couldn't read the article that compared the two taping techniques, but I will say, last summer between injuring my knee and having surgery, my physical therapist used tape to keep my kneecap in...

Re: Help! possible SLAP tear

My only advice is to make sure they do the MRI with contrast. I was diagnosed with a SLAP tear that turned out to be a torn muscle. I tore my supraspinatus in an unusual location and so it...

Re: Farmer Walks/inner knee injury

There is also the MPFL, which is a small little ligament that no one has ever heard of but that is really important in stabilizing the knee.

Also, mobility! Foam roll your IT band and that may...

Re: Knees

What kind of pain is it? I've never had "all over" pain, since mine is usually concentrated in very specific areas, but I will default to my standard response, which is to get a doctor to check it...

Re: Advice for coping in rehab, body and mind

I tweaked my knee last April and ended up having surgery in August (after months of PT). In the end I was out of the gym for about 4 months (partially because I couldn't afford my co-pays for PT and...

Re: Ears (sinus?) block following intensive excercise

I have a similar problem with chronic sinus issues. I've had them since HS (about ten years), so long before I started CF. I had x-rays and there wasn't anything there. However, I had no idea that...

Re: Lack of Running & Rowing in the Open? Why?

We've had this conversation at my gym before. It would be difficult to video running and verify the distance, and almost impossible with rowing since you'd have to video the person plus the...

Re: Post-knee surgery WODs, ideas?

I had knee surgery in August and was pretty limited for a really long time. Rowing was the first thing I could do that made me feel like I was on my way back. And squats to parallel. For me it was...

Re: Restarting

Due to a knee injury, my schedule was all screwed up. I would have PT in the morning, so would work later in the evening and then get home late. I have a lot of flexibility in my hours, so 11...

Re: WOD with a cold?

I'm a big proponent of rest days when you feel sick. Aside from spreading any possible infection, it's not the best for your body.

The way I see it is that rest days are just as important as...

Re: Can some people share their knee injury experiences?

I've had a number of knee problems, though never bursitis. I have tendinitis in my shoulder, and usually for that I just rest it, pop some Advil and ice it.

I second going to PT. If it wasn't for...

I rely on belts. It's not easy for women, either.

Re: Requesting advice for semi-chronic swollen knee

I used to have the same problem in both knees. I injured the inner knee tissue and ended up with surgery to loosen it up. The procedure I had done isn't for everyone and the rehab isn't easy, but...

Re: Leg Infection

I don't disagree that light exercise would be good, but the first concern here is protecting the wound. The difference between a skin infection and an acute injury is that a torn ligament isn't...

Re: Leg Infection

I'm extremely biased, but I say CrossFit Fenway. Great community and great coaches.

If I was choosing a box, I'd say it would come down to location and whether or not I had a car because the Boston...
