Overuse injuries, sometimes called repetitive strain injuries (RSIs), happen overtime from a repetitive activity. Usually related to sports or other activities, they can affect bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and other joint structures.
These injuries are a result of using a set of muscles without allowing enough time for them to rest and recover. Children and older adults have a higher risk of developing an overuse injury. Other risk factors include poor conditioning, lack of training and incorrect form while engaging in an activity, whether that’s your favorite sport, hobby or part of your job.
An overuse injury can prevent you from comfortably playing a sport or even working. Our team at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine understands how that affects your quality of life.
