Overuse pain is one of the most common forms of musculoskeletal pain. Muscles and joints of the body do not receive proper blood flow or oxygen. The lack of oxygen allows acid and chemicals to build up in the muscles and joints, causing local tissue irritation and pain.
Anti-inflammatory medications typically are not effective in treating overuse pain. Keep an open line of communication with us and your family medical physician on progress throughout your treatment plan.
