Understanding Overuse Injuries

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

tennisWhether 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.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are trained and certified in treating a wide range of overuse injuries. We sit on the cutting edge of sports medicine, and work with you to understand the unique and individual causes of your pain, helping to craft a treatment plan specific to your body's needs.

If you're suffering from an overuse injury, call and schedule an appointment with one of our physicians today.

A Little Known Muscle We Know As the Psoas

There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.
