What is an overuse injury?

0

• Overuse injury is an improperly understood term. Typically, the prescription is rest because you “overuse” a tissue. However, it is not physiologically possible to overuse just one focal area without surrounding dysfunction. What really occurs is a series of restrictions create a compensation and the compensation is over-used. A better term would be a “mis-use” injury. Rest does not eliminate the restrictions, only proper rehabilitation and activity can eliminate the restrictions.
