UH Sports Medicine Expertise for Overuse Injuries

Sports injuries fall into two basic categories – acute injury and overuse or repetitive injury. While both can significantly interrupt your routine, overuse injuries are much more common. Because they are more subtle and occur over time, overuse injuries must be diagnosed and treated properly for optimal healing and full recovery.

For any overuse sports-related issue, across any age and any skill level, the sports medicine team at University Hospitals has the expertise to care for these conditions which can significantly affect your athletic performance. Our University Hospitals sports medicine team provides expert care of any overuse injury, including:
