Sports Medicine

Overuse Injuries

The following information is from STOPsportsinjuries.org’s Tip Sheet on Overuse Injuries. To view the Tip Sheet in its entirety click here.

Overuse injuries are the most common injuries in sports. Overuse injuries occur when the body's natural ability to remodel by rebuilding tissue following the breakdown of tissue is thrown off balance by incurring more break down than buildup. Common causes of overuse injuries include over training and poor technique while training. Muscle and flexibility imbalances around joints can also be contributing factors. Overuse injuries can be prevented by listening to your body. "No pain, no gain" is the wrong moniker to follow when it comes to overuse injuries as the more pain causing activity that is performed the worse the injury will get. If you think you may have an overuse injury see your athletic trainer or other licensed healthcare provider to implement therapeutic intervention and adjustments in training protocol.

Cardinal Cup
The winter season is full of opportunities for student-athletes to support their fellow Cardinals. This is clearly evident in the next two weeks with all of our winter sports teams in action both at home and away contests. Come out and cheer on your Cardinal comrades and don't forget to fill out a Cardinal Cup Activity Sheet or let the Athletic Department know of your activities so you help your team take home the Cardinal Cup.
