Arvada, CO (PRWEB) April 21, 2017
Crossover Symmetry, an evidence based shoulder health and performance system, has partnered with O2X, an active lifestyle company that provides Human Performance Training and education to tactical athletes. Together they are focused on improving the health of firefighters, police offers, first responders, military officers and others in service through the development and conditioning of overall fitness and shoulder health. Already used by Major League Baseball players, CrossFit athletes, professional triathletes, swimmers and golfers, the Crossover Symmetry system uses the highest quality durable bands on the market, alongside medically backed unique shoulder programs that will enhance the education and human performance program that O2X implements nationally.
The O2X Human Performance program provides a revolutionary training and education curriculum that is saving lives and building healthier, safer communities. Their core focus is to help tactical athletes who encounter heightened levels of both mental and physical stress on a daily basis, improve their physical and mental readiness and increase their productivity. Through a science-backed, comprehensive training and education program, O2X helps these tactical athletes finish their careers stronger than they started.
“We recognized the importance of improving tactical athletes’ quality of life and their ability to perform their jobs as best as possible by focusing on five key concepts: Conditioning, Nutrition, Sleep, Stress Mitigation, and Resiliency Development,” said O2X Co-Founder Adam La Reau. “With a team of over 30 world-class specialists, we are able to offer a multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to human performance that improves the overall well-being of tactical athletes. We love what Crossover Symmetry does for the shoulder health of athletes, from amateur to professional, and are certain that it will make a great addition to our O2X program.”
The partnership with O2X builds on the success that Crossover Symmetry has already seen with other fire departments, including the Denver Fire Department and the Milwaukee Fire Department. After implementing a health and wellness program with the Denver Fire Department that included the use of the Crossover Symmetry shoulder protocol, the department’s workman’s compensation dropped by 42%. After only two weeks of implementing Crossover Symmetry for 5 minutes per day, there were measurable improvements in the firefighters’ shoulder mobility and reach distance, and firefighters reported coming back from injury much faster. Currently, over 53% of fire ground injuries are attributed to sprains, strains, or muscular pain, many of which can easily be treated with regular therapy and even more important, prevented with mobility and strengthening programs such as the ones that Crossover Symmetry offers.
“It has been exciting for us to see how much of a positive impact Crossover Symmetry can have on the shoulder health of firefighters and other tactical athletes,” said Duggan Moran, President and Founder of Crossover Symmetry. “Shoulder injuries are a big issue in these lines of work, and our program can help to fix or alleviate most shoulder injuries, even rotator cuff and labrum tears, without surgery. We know that through our partnership with O2X, we will be able to assist a greater number of tactical professionals who are in need of an effective rehabilitation program.”
