Overuse Injuries

The injuries caused due to improper or overuse of a certain part of our body like tennis elbow, muscle sprains, shoulder pain, knee pain, backache and other overuse injuries are treated at Sports Med.
Overuse injuries are difficult to diagnose because the pains caused by repetitive micro-trauma often go unreported or are overlooked by the athlete/injured person during the initial progression of the injury. Many people ignore minor aches and pains in the initial stages, due to negligence, resulting later in severe overuse injury. Teaching athletes to recognize and report any small aches or pains is the first step in reversing and preventing the development of an injury. Particularly in young athletes, an undiagnosed injury often leads to a more severe injury down the road.
