Doctor Shares Tips to Avoid Overuse Injuries and Burnout

Paramus Daily Voice—August 16, 2016

In a recently published article in Paramus Daily Voice, David A. Wang, MD, a primary care sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, discusses how to avoid overuse injuries and burnouts while training.

Dr. Wang notes, "In general, treatment for overuse injuries involves resting and allowing the affected area time to heal. This is then followed by rehabilitation to strengthen the injured area and correct any imbalances that may have triggered the injury."

He adds, "The best treatment for overuse injuries is to prevent them in the first place. Whether it's taking a day off during the week, incorporating cross training or gradually increasing the amount of workout activity, it's important to ensure the body has enough time to recover and heal."
