Overuse injuries typically occur when people commence too much weightbearing activity during a short period of time.
Our bodies can only handle a certain amount of load over a given time period.
Overuse injuries commonly occur in sedentary people commencing a physical activity program, athletes returning to training after a lay off and children.
Common overuse injuries can include:
* Stress Fractures
* Muscle Strains
* Shin Pain
* Heel Pain
* Nerve Impingements
* Achilles Tendonopathy
* Tibialias Posterior Tendonopathy
As there are many causes of an overuse injury forming, it is important to have a thorough examination to establish what structure is responsible for the pain, what has caused it to occur and the best way to manage it correctly.
