Orthopedic One: Don't Overdo It

Participating in sports has been shown to positively impact an athlete's physical, mental, and social health. However, there can be too much of a good thing and athletes can put themselves at risk for an overuse injury unless they take proper precautions. Take a few moments to learn how to spot an overuse injury, how overuse injuries happen, and how to treat overuse injuries and prevent reoccurrence or new injuries.
Signs of Overuse Injuries:
  • Pain, specifically sharp, stabbing pain, during sports-related movements and everyday activities like using the stairs
  • The appearance of blisters or skin irritations
  • The onset of headaches, shortness of breath, dizziness, or lightheadedness during activity
Factors that May Contribute to Overuse Injuries:
  • A recent change in activity
  • An increase in activity
  • Playing multiple sports at the same time
  • Overtraining
  • Age; overuse injuries are most prevalent during the growth spurt that takes place between the ages of 9-14
Common Treatment Techniques for Overuse Injuries:
  • Rest; Complete rest or active rest, depending on the type and severity of the injury
  • Icing
  • Activity modification
  • Stretching/incorporating a flexibility program into training sessions
  • Physical therapy
  • Anti-inflammatory medications (if recommended by a physician)
Prevention of overuse injuries:
  • Schedule a pre-season physical to identify risk factors 
  • Perform a dynamic warm-up and static cool-down during all training sessions  
  • Integrate cross-training so the athlete incorporates exercises that focus on both strength and flexibility  
  • Hydrate before, during, and after activity  
  • Avoid playing just one sport year-round, as sport specialization can increase the likelihood of overuse injuries 
  • Allow a period of complete rest between each sports season
