Overuse Injuries

Overuse injuries occur from repeating the same movement too frequently without enough time for your body to rest, recover, and rejuvenate. Predisposing factors include the use of poorly fitted shoes, inadequate warm-up and cool-down periods, poor training techniques, and similar. Overworked muscles become fatigued and eventually strain or tear. Common overuse injuries include tennis elbow, runner’s knee, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis. Physical therapy treatments focus on strengthening and stretching the affected muscle/tendon groups.

Greendale Physical Therapy can help you manage these issues, including:

  • Manual therapies
  • Modalities including heat, ice, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation
  • Patient education regarding activities, posture, and biomechanics
  • Customized exercise program to build strength and flexibility in underused muscles

Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
