Chiropractors seeing more overuse injuries – WSYM-TV

11August 2020

With many individuals exercising at home, one regional chiropractic physician said he is seeing more overuse injuries recently.

Overuse injuries happen when our muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons go through repeated stress.

Those injuries are appearing in Doctor Reid Meador's workplace, Chiropractic Unlimited, in the form of pain in the back, along with leg and wrist sprains.

He said one reason why is that people aren't making the effort to heat up, stretch or hydrate in your home prior to an exercise like they would when they're in a fitness center or a fitness class. And, that can cause problems gradually.

“I think among the most significant things today is individuals are just finding videos online and, possibly they find one they like, all of a sudden they're doing that 4 or 5 times a week,” explained Dr. Meador.

“It's type of the same motions over and over which, again, goes back to that overuse injury portion of it. So I ‘d state discover 3 or 4 various exercises that are working various parts of the body, and try to do those so that those other parts of the body get that rest and healing that they require.”

That discomfort can even appear as many people are working from house today.

Physician Meador said it's crucial to have an appropriate work space that allows people to stay up straight and keep the shoulders back to avoid stress on the hip, neck and back.
