What are overuse injuries?
A consistent yet aggressive workout routine, repetitive movements at work, and sports-related activities can all cause overuse injuries in your body. At Preston Surgery Center, we commonly receive referrals for patients from their primary care physician and need treatment for overuse injuries. As you gradually start to lose your tolerance to grueling, repetitive physical activities, you will notice the intensity will limit your performance. You may only feel an overuse injury right after your exercise, but when you have pain all the time, it is probably time to seek the help of an orthopedic specialist. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons can assess the injuries to your bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments for overuse. You may feel more than just pain with these types of injuries. You may also experience numbness, rigid muscles, tingling sensations, diminished mobility, and more.
Overuse injuries in children
Children who are in competitive sports, dance, gymnastics, and other similar activities can experience overuse injures, especially during a growth spurt. This can, unfortunately, lead to an imbalance growth of areas injured. Helping children understand and recognize overuse injuries is an important key to preventing major damage.
Overuse injuries in adults
Exercise and maintaining employment are both beneficial to all aspects of your well-being. Overuse injuries in adults are common when they focus on one type of exercise, such as running, tennis, or weightlifting. Having an occupation that requires the same movement over and over again can cause damage and pain to your soft tissues, as well. Limiting the repetition or changing up your routine may be a helpful way to prevent further overuse.
When at-home remedies (rest, anti-inflammatory medications, ice, heat, or stretching) no longer bring relief, it is an indication that you need to be seen by a specialist who regularly diagnoses and treats overuse injuries. You may qualify for one or a combination of oral medications, a splint, a sling, a cast, crutches, injections, physical therapy, or surgery. We invite you to reach out to our orthopedics team at Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX for an appointment.
