It is important to identify why most of these injuries occur: repetitive movement. Anytime you overuse or continually make demands on an area of the body that bends, rotates or twists — I’m talking about your joints — you run the risk of incurring a wear-and-tear injury. Add time and impact to this repetition and you wind up with chronic pain. So, one way to remain active is to find ways to avoid stressing the afflicted joint.
Seeking the advice of a physical therapist is a good first step. They will identify the problem, prescribe the treatment necessary for rehabilitation, suggest helpful exercises and supply you with a list of exercises to avoid.
