One of the most common misalignment patterns I see with Crossfit athletes is an anterior iliium.  An anteriorly rotated ilium creates compensatory changes along the entire kinematic chain to include overpronation of the foot, adduction and internal rotation of the knee, and tight overactive hip external rotators.

 

Active Release Technique is a patented, non-invasive, soft-tissue treatment process that both locates and breaks down the scar tissue and fibrotic adhesions, which cause pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, numbness, and physical dysfunction associated with Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).  ART is used both for the treatment of RSI’s, as well as the improvement of athletic performance.
