You just started exercising and you felt great, so you dramatically increased the intensity and duration of your workout.  While doing that you felt a dull pain.  Over the next few days the pain recurred intermittently, but it wasn’t bad enough to interfere with your exercise.  So, you pushed on, ignoring the pain.  As time passed, the pain got to the point where you felt the pain during and after your exercise as well.

This is an example of an overuse injury, specifically tendinitis, which is one of the most common sports related injuries.  Now, in previous shows I covered other types of sports injuries, such as muscle soreness and cramps (show 40) and sprains and strains (show 44).  But in this show I am going to talk about tendinitis.  I’ll tell you what it is, who is at risk, ways to prevent it and what to do if you get it.

Some references I used while researching this show are the New Wellness Encyclopedia, Orthopedic Physical Assessment and emedicinehealth.com.
