Overuse Injuries

 

Overuse injuries are injuries that occur over time as one motion/activity/sport is performed.  Some of the most common overuse injuries are tennis elbow, golfers elbow, hip bursitis, chondromalacia, plantar fascitis, shin splints, and Achilles tendonitis.  Wallace Physical Therapy has dealt with each of these injuries and others.  Treatment sessions will depend on the injury, but will usually include modalities to calm down any inflammation and pain; ultrasound, hot/cold packs, therapeutic massage.  Thereafter, each therapist will instruct the patient about stretching and various exercises that will simulate the activity but not aggravate the affected area.
