Whether it’s golf, tennis, running or another physical activity, one of the most common causes of sport injury is overuse.
Medically speaking, an overuse injury happens when a bone, muscle, joint, or ligament is subject to repetitive stress – for example, a golf or tennis swing – without having adequate time to heal or recover. They typically occur when you train incorrectly or perform a move using improper technique.
You can prevent overuse injuries by mixing up your training routine, warming up correctly, practicing proper form using the right equipment and increasing your level of activity slowly over time.
