Understanding Overuse Injuries Atlanta, GA

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.

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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
