Tips on knowing where to send clients with injuries

If a client expresses concern of injury in your class, there are a few options we have to recommend for each client. It is not our responsibility nor can we diagnose a client or prescribe a form of treatment. We can recommend a few options for clients to seek professional treatment for an injury sustained either in or out of our studios.

Here are a few options to recommend:

  • In all cases, verbally tell clients we highly recommend seeking professional support from their doctor prior to any additional activity

  • If a client is seeking your recommendation for any of the following, you may recommend your personal preference for each:

    • Issues with joint pain - seek a doctor immediately

    • Issues with mobility, tight hamstrings, shoulder soreness in rotations, etc - seek a licensed or certified mobility specialist or sports recovery doctor

    • Issues with hips, unable to squat properly - seek a doctor immediately

    • Issues with lower back pain, sharp shooting pains during exercise - seek a licensed or certified sports recovery doctor or therapist

    • Soreness or tightness of muscles, especially during workouts - seek certified mobility specialist or a deep stretch yoga or mobility class
