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!
Links deleted. You must indicate whether your links are Work and Family Safe (WFS)

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

Re: What you need to know about knee pain

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

Re: What you need to know about knee pain

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.
