How It Happens

An overuse injury can happen with repetitive movements over a while. There are many reasons like the tightness of muscles or imbalance of muscle strength around joints which can lead to an overuse injury. It can also happen with old age and some sports which involve the same movements repeatedly. In sports activities using the wrong technique or improper equipment can also cause an injury. There are certain risk factors like other medical conditions, overloading certain groups of muscles, and previous injuries. Some common overuse injuries examples are tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder, jumper’s knee, and plantar fasciitis.

The Treatment

To treat overuse injuries, the physiotherapist will do the assessment first. In the assessment session, they will ask how your injury happened, what type of activities you are doing daily if you have any other medical condition or previous injury to the same body part. After that, they will note which movement is painful and according to that, they will make a treatment plan. The initial goal of treatment is to reduce pain and stiffness, reduce muscle spasms, and improve posture, muscle strength, and joints range of motion. To do that your physiotherapist can use modalities like ultrasound or laser to improve tissue healing. Treatment can also include soft tissue release, joint mobilization, and muscle strengthening. The postural correction will also play an important role in the treatment of overuse injuries.
