Overuse injuries occur to muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and bone. Today this type of injury is on the rise, especially in amateur and professional athletes who train more intensely and for longer periods of time and occupations that involve repetitive movements on a daily or weekly basis. It’s important that you don’t wait for an injury to happen, start being proactive today in a prevention program.

First Step: Inform yourself on the injuries that can occur with specific occupations and sports as well as any treatments, stretches, strengthening exercise, hydrotherapy and postural corrections that can prevent this from happening.
 
 
 
 
Second Step: Choose the preventative exercise(s) or treatment(s) that will work with your schedule. It is imperative that you choose ones that you will be able to commit to and are able to follow through with on a daily basis.
 
 
 
 
Third Step: Pay attention to your body. This is extremely important. Injuries can often be prevented if you pay attention to what your body is telling you. Pain is a signal produced for a reason. People who take pain killers and then continue doing the activity that caused the pain in the first place, will definitely end up having some form of injury.

Be aware of your posture. Faulty postures especially when held for a long time can essentially put strain on your joints and may compromise your overall health. Many of us are not aware of how poor our posture is. How you carry yourself while doing your activities of daily living, sitting and even sleeping can have a huge impact on the way you function. Proper posture means your bones are aligned in such a way that there is minimal stress or tension. This proper alignment allows your muscles, joints, and ligaments to work smoothly. Faulty postures essentially put strain on your joints and may compromise your overall health. Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, therapeutic exercises, Yoga and Pilates are all excellent ways of helping you to achieve the optimum posture and ultimately will help you perform at your best.
