What are Common Overuse Injuries?

Whether you are working out or simply going about your average daily chores, or standing for prolonged periods at work, you are still using your body. That means Overuse Injuries can occur. Tendons, Ligaments, Muscles, Nerve Tissue and Bones can all be affected by overuse. Some common causes are lack of Muscle Strength and Endurance, Poor Core Stability, Inflexibility, Faulty Technique or even Incorrect Footwear.

There are often common signs that you may have an Overuse Injury:

  • Discomfort that disappears after warming up.
  • Discomfort at the end of an activity.
  • Discomfort that worsens as you perform an activity.
  • Consistent Pain and Discomfort in your Foot, Knee or Ankle.
