Repetitive Injuries – How to “Tip the Scales” in Your Favor (and make a full recovery!)
Aug 24, 2018
Repetitive injuries can be some of the most tricky types of pain to deal with.
This includes things like: tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), rotator cuff injuries, ITB irritation and Achilles tendon issues.
Typically, these injuries happen slowly over time, as the amount of irritation and damage slowly outweighs the amount of overall healing.
You can think of these 2 opposing forces as 2 sides of the scale: irritation and damage vs. healing.
At some point, people with these injuries reach a certain threshold, and the pain becomes much more severe and/or frequent. This is when they typically start to seek treatment.
In today’s video, I’ll explain in detail how we help our patients “tip the scales” back in the other direction, and I’ll also tell you about the common mistakes our patients make when looking to fully eliminate the pain and damage.
