Common Summer Injuries

Summer is here and with that come sports and activities that your body may not be accustomed to performing.  These are some of the most common injuries we see in the summertime and what PT can do to help.

  • Plantar fasciitis:  As we start exercise programs, new activities, or begin wearing more sandals, many people experience pain on the bottom of the foot.  Physical therapy may include footwear modification, stretching and strengthening exercises, manual therapy to reduce soft tissue restrictions, and orthotic and shoe wear assessment.
  • Lateral and medial epicondylitis:  Tennis players, golfers, and patients who sit at a computer all day are the likely to have pain at their inside or outside of their elbow.  Physical therapy may include manual therapy, stretching, strengthening, and modalities to decrease pain and inflammation including electrical stimulation or taping.
  • Shoulder overuse injuries:  Can include pain in the upper arm and shoulder from excessive lifting and carrying, painting, or throwing.  Manual therapy and shoulder blade strengthening, stretching and modalities to decrease pain and inflammation are key to resolving these symptoms.
  • Metatarsalgia:  This is often prevalent in runners and is pain in the foot where the toes and foot meet.  A sudden increase in mileage or poor training techniques in combination with inappropriate footwear can contribute to this.  Physical therapy may include manual therapy to address soft tissue restrictions, stretching, and strengthening to target muscle imbalances as well as shoe wear and gait modificiations.
  • General neck strains and low back strains:  These are very common in our patients who love to do yard work and gardening.  Often many areas need to be addressed in these individuals, with manual therapy and education on body mechanics and strengthening.

If you have more specific questions about any of these feel free to comment and we will reply back to you.  If you have or are developing pain in any of these areas, it is best to contact a PT as soon as you can before inflammation becomes greater or pain becomes chronic which is much more difficult to take care of quickly.  The longer these pains continue, the more our bodies begin to compensate for the pain and cause other problems too.

Here’s to a healthy rest of the summer for you and your body!
