What is Overuse?

From Google Images
Overuse is an overload of the tissue and can be caused by repetitive, forceful impacts[1]. It is not a broken wrist or concussion, since those are acute injuries. DiFiori et al[2] defines the cause as follows; “Overuse injuries occur due to repetitive submaximal loading of the musculoskeletal system when rest is not adequate to allow for structural adaptation to take place”.
