New Jersey Sports Medicine Physician Explains Latest Treatments for Overuse Injuries

Dr. Laurie Glasser, a Sports Medicine Specialist in Central New Jersey, Explains a New Approach for Treating Overuse Injuries

WALL, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- When dealing with overuse injuries, New Jersey sports medicine physician, Laurie L. Glasser, MD says there has been a recent shift in treatment options. She explains that when excessive stress is placed on bones, muscles, ligaments, or tendons without an adequate amount of time for recovery, these strained areas can become an overuse injury.

Dr. Glasser recently explained these types of wounds in a blog post titled, "What is an Overuse Injury?" In the post, she outlines a few common examples of overuse injuries, such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis/fasciosis
  • Golfer's and tennis elbow
  • Achilles tendinitis/tendinosis
  • Patellar tendonitis/tendinosis

According to Dr. Glasser, tendon injuries are among the most common overuse injuries, and also tend to be more difficult to treat. She explains that a shift in how doctors approach them has sparked a wave of new treatment options, referred to as regenerative medicine. She says, "Many doctors used to believe that tendon injuries were a result of inflammation. However, it is now more widely believed that these injuries occur when a tendon is unable to adapt to the stress put on it because of collagen and cellular degeneration."

In a follow-up blog post titled, "Regenerative Therapy for Overuse Injuries," Dr. Glasser provides examples of regenerative therapy, such as EPAT® and Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy, and stem cell injections. She explains that these treatment options are thought to accelerate healing. The New Jersey sports medicine and musculoskeletal specialist says these options are believed to be particularly beneficial for chronic tendon injuries, which tend to remain in an "under-healed" state, delaying healing.

Ultimately, Dr. Glasser says these new forms of treatment are still considered "investigational" at this point, but they show great promise for helping to improve recovery times for patients. She also stresses the importance of early diagnosis and treatment, and encourages anyone who suspects they may have an overuse injury to consult a physician immediately.
