Crossfit. Pure Barre. P90X. Hot Yoga. TRX. Insanity- just to name a few of the hottest fad workouts people are participating in. They have many things in common such as having the power to get people excited to work out but they also all come with their own risks and set of potential injures. Who do we, as future physical therapists, keep the newbie or advanced participant from pushing themselves so hard and leading to injury? Is there a way to educate those participants before they end up in our clinic or is that stepping on the toes of the coaches who teach these classes?
Please note that this chat is not intended for us to bash these workouts but to discuss how we can help educate those who may push themselves too far. See ya Wednesday!
