Risk Factors Contributing to Overuse Injuries In Sports

© Brett P. Thomas DO

Intrinsic (Anatomical)
* Musculoskeletal malalignment
* Musculoskeletal inability
* Inflexibility of muscle
* Muscle weakness

Extrinsic (Training Errors & Equipment Problems)
* Improper training technique or biomechanics
* Changes in training technique
* Changes in training environment or terrain
* Inappropriate equipment or poorly fitted equipment
* Increase in training frequency, intensity or duration.

(Note: Osteopathic manipulation is a valuable tool for the prevention and treatment of sports injuries.Ensuring that the body’s musculoskeletal system is in proper balance and alignment can prevent injuries. Once an injury has taken place, it is wise to be evaluated and treated osteopathically to quicken healing time, prevent chronic injuries and help the young athletes reach their fullest potential and enjoy all of their sports endeavors.)
