Melissa Knourek is a former member of the United States Marine Corp. She proudly served our country until the day a shoulder injury ended her career. She once wondered if she would ever return to an active life-style, but CrossFit and Trigger Point Performance Therapy have provided her the platform to become a competitive, fire-breathing athlete, once again.
She shared with us that her right shoulder blade has very limited mobility due to shoulder reconstruction surgery. She describes it as being “surgically locked in place.” This causes her a great deal of pain and tension throughout her shoulder region. The daily use of Trigger Point Therapy has become part of her life-style. She describes working through the trigger points in her shoulder as “uncomfortable, but very much worth the long-term relief and shoulder mobility she receives.”
Melissa is also familiar with our Revolutionary Foam Roller, the Grid. She shares, “I also use the Grid for my entire body…. the relief/recovery this provides is pivotal to my success at CrossFit and just overall well being from soreness caused by my injury and workouts. Part of our daily work-out (WOD) includes 5 minutes worth of rolling out – MANDATORY! On my rest days, sometimes I just go into the Gym just to roll out knowing it will help with the recovery and ability to move with ease.”
