Active Care Chiropractic has been helping Crossfit athletes for years, and is now expanding by adding a second office in the same building as Crossfit Wilmington. Active Care Chiropractic utilizes Active Release Techniques, a muscle therapy that is the official treatment of the Ironman Triathlon series. By combining traditional chiropractic adjustments, Active Release Techniques, and functional movements we have been able to treat a variety of conditions rather than just low back and neck pain. We’ve been very successful with conditions such as Olympic lifting wrist pain, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff syndrome, shin splints, etc.
At Active Care, one of our biggest priorities has always been to strive for wellness, rather than only treating symptoms. We want to keep athletes’ bodies tuned up so they can do 20 more wall balls, cut 30 more seconds off of a timed workout, or crush their deadlift record. Crossfitters demand a lot out of their bodies, and now we can be right here to keep them doing what they love.
This week test of the strength programming you’ve worked on in the last 8-12 weeks. To perform your best on the 1rm maxes of Back Squat, Bench Press (Tues), Deadlift (Thur), and Shoulder Press (Fri) you will need to focus on them by foregoing other supplemental work and get adequate sleep and rest.
Next week we will transition from the current strength/foundation cycle to a speed/power development cycle that begins the incorporation of the Olympic Lifts, their supporting movements and more CrossFit style Metabolic Conditioning (MetCon).
