Whether you’re 18 or 81, every fitness regimen should include regular weight training.
Good technique is critical, and you should never lift more than what’s right for you. This is especially important for competitive weight lifters who regularly challenge the limits of their amazing strength. But even seasoned professionals can sometimes push too far, and that’s when it’s time to call us.
Weight lifting injuries most commonly occur as a result of improperly aligned joints, especially the spine or knees. But injuries can also be caused by overexertion from too many reps or adding resistance too fast. Without proper treatment, many of these injuries can develop into chronic problems.
At Andrews Sports Medicine, you’ll work with some of the leading sports medicine doctors in the world. We use a team approach to provide you with the right options for you based on your goals and condition, whether that means surgical or nonsurgical treatment.
