ABOUT DR NICK NERATKA
As a Crossfit athlete myself I don’t just practice functional movement I apply it into my own training. And As a professional who works with athletes, a lot of the injuries and pain complaints that I hear, though not all, are due to improper loading or positioning in even the most simple movements such as an air squat or pull up. When these skills are performed under load or with intensity, poor mechanics can cause certain muscle groups and joints to take on a role they shouldn’t. This is when injury and pain can occur. My goal as a doc who works with athletes and even non athletes is my assessment through movement. At this point I am able to teach how a good position should feel, along with applying corrective exercises, and joint manipulation — a patient can begin to move better and in turn move more.
