Bodybuilding, Powerlifting & Olympic Weight Lifting
Injury management in Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Olympic Weight-lifting and even crossfit can be a different beast all together, but can actually be quite straight forward to manage if done correctly
There are a number of reasons as to how certain tissues in the body can become overloaded and consequently injured. In order to amend an injured body part, we often need to find out how and why it was injured in the first place to make sure it doesn't happen again once recovery is complete. Was it a programming issue (i.e. increasing weight too soon on the bench press resulting in a rotator cuff strain), or is it a technique issue (excessive knee "valgus" during lunges), or were you just unlucky and got into the wrong position during a hang clean.
This is what we aim to get to the bottom of during your treatment , so that when you're back to normal training you can stay there!
See Below a common list injuries we see with weight lifters, bodybuilders and powerlifters and how we treat them in clinic.
