I work out of a Crossfit gym and a large percentage of my patients are crossfit athletes. There is a lot of opportunity here. I made a long post in the admin section regarding some of what I do and how I got started. They will love IDN. From a recovery standpoint they will notice a difference. If they don’t have a pain complaint I highly recommend starting with the homeostatic points. I have had good success needling the homeostatic points only. I have done this for athletes during the open, prepping for regionals and intervals throughout the season.
The easiest communication is to relate to what they’re already doing. Most of them are smashing tissue. I relate by saying we can work similar areas but get deeper and have more of an effect on inflammation than you can with a lacrosse ball.
Let me know what other specific questions you have. Happy to help!
