Overuse Injury In Sports People

Decent Essays
Overuse injury is most common in sports people as it is an injury that occurs due to the muscles being used with not enough rest in between to allow for repair. The muscles are put under too much stress and repetitive use causes the injuries. The only cure for such injury is to rest, however, no sports person wants to hear this, so they will continue, especially if they are a professional. However, if the individual can continue to exercise and use different muscles or parts of the body where the injury is, this will help considerably. For example a tennis player with tennis elbow could start running or cycling were the upper body is not used as much.
An example of overuse injury is tendonitis, such as tennis elbow, or stress fracture
