I wanted to drop a line. I’ve been with KStar for a long, long time. I found MWOD in a desperate attempt to self-heal to avoid the surgery that my world-class orthopedic doctor recommended was my “only option” for a nearly-debilitating case of Achilles tendinosis. He wanted to “get in there and clean it up.” Besides leading me to find CrossFit to (thankfully) replace long-distance endurance running, over the years, I’ve used what I’ve learned here to not only regain a fully functioning ankle (and therefore knee, hip, back, shoulders, etc.). In fact, I have zero pain, zero swelling. I clean & jerk, snatch, jump rope, box jumps, run, YOU NAME IT. This is incredible considering I could barely walk for nearly 2 years and the only option given to me by a professional was to go under the knife. The icing on the cake is my recently regained ability to do rebound box jumps. Around 2009-2010, the idea of jumping, let alone a rebound box jump, was an utter fantasy.
I’m glad you had the exact kind of success that I am hoping to achieve myself! I’m new here but anything that takes people away from surgery just by moving better sounds like exactly what the world needs everywhere. Congrats on your CrossFit business as well. It is wonderful to be so excited by exercise and mobility that you can pass those important lessons on to others as well.
Congrats to you, and thanks for sharing a great story. I’m sure many of us feel the same way about how the intersection of CrossFit and MWod has changed our lives forever.
