The body has an amazing ability to grow stronger under a repeated load, such as weight training. But when the body is given an inadequate recovery time between sessions, an overuse injury can develop.
As might be expected, these are most common among athletes, but can also be found in occupations where a specific movement is repeated many times per day, such as an office worker who types on a computer keyboard all day and develops carpal tunnel syndrome.
The most often prescribed solution to these is a cessation of the activity in question until the pain subsides, but since this is not always possible. Affordable physical therapy Alexandria provides a solution in the form of stretching, muscle setting and relaxing, as well as teaching better body mechanics and pain management techniques.
