| | | | What Would a Physio Do?

Author / Luke Summers

The Power Athlete crew sits down with our friend Antony Lo, the Physio Detective, for a candid Q & A.  Antony came and visited with us after the CrossFit Games to talk shop so we can better align on our sometimes “diverging positions” on things like tension, and movement.

What we discovered is that it all comes down to the idea that Ant is a Healthcare Practitioner, and we are Performance Whores.  What we find is that those two ends of the spectrum can align with just a little bit of discussion and establishing context.

You can find Ant here on Power Athlete HQ under the username @physiodetective, or find him on Facebook and Twitter, or any other contact method listed here.

Antony Lo is an APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist based in Sydney. His website is www.MyPhysios.com.au.  His blog is www.PhysioDetective.com. He specializes in the management, treatment and prevention of pain and dysfunction, particularly of the pelvis and ribcage. His sub-specialties include Crossfit and Exercise Performance Optimization, Ante-Natal and Post-Natal Care and difficult cases that have failed treatment elsewhere.

    Ant has been helping me out with some shoulder and neuromuscular issues recently. This guy is a legit wizard and so generous with his time. Anyone in Aus should seek him out.

    I like how you guys do a little business right in the middle of the discussion. Always time for business.

    @IngoB, that’s why we all wear business socks
