Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries suffered by athletes and non-athletes alike. The problem with them is that they not only recur more frequently than any other injury but they make it very hard to lift with proper form. Doing squats and deadlifts become especially difficult if you lack the range of motion and mobility needed in your ankle to get down low enough. If you lack the dorsiflexion needed in your ankle to do this properly, you wind up causing compensatory pain and injury in the knees or hips.

Elbow pain when working out is the second most common source of joint pain when training (behind shoulders). When you get pain in your elbows it makes almost every upper body movement difficult to complete. Inner elbow pain can make chin-ups virtually impossible. Outer elbow pain can make even picking up a dumbbell feel like a chore. What causes them and most importantly…what you can do to fix them.

Medial elbow pain is referred to as golfer’s elbow. This comes from an inflammation of the flexor muscles in your forearms. I see this happen most often as a result of doing chin-ups or other upper body pulling exercises where the back, rhomboids or biceps are simply not strong enough to complete the rep. Once they fatigue, the forearms attempt to kick in to help and overuse, overload and an inability to control the eccentric portion of the reps eventually taxes the muscles beyond their limits.

Headache is pain in any region of the head. Headaches may occur on one or both sides of the head, be isolated to a certain location, radiate across the head from one point, or have a viselike quality. A headache may appear as a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions — including arthritis, gout and infections — also can cause knee pain. Many types of minor knee pain respond well to self-care measures
By far the most common cause of lower back pain, mechanical pain (axial pain) is painprimarily from the muscles, ligaments, joints (facet joints, sacroiliac joints), or bones in and around the spine. This type of pain tends to be localized to the lower back, buttocks, and sometimes the top of the legs.
Many people experience neck pain or stiffness occasionally. In many cases, it’s due to poor posture or overuse. Sometimes, neck pain is caused by injury from a fall, contact sports, or whiplash.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.
A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure disrupts the nerve’s function, causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness. A pinched nerve can occur at a number of sites in your body.
Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common recurring tendonitis injuries that active people will have to deal with. Often times, the reason why the plantar fascia keeps getting inflamed and the symptoms keep coming back is due to the fact that we never truly treat the cause of the pain rather just the source of the pain.
A muscle strain, or pulled muscle, occurs when your muscle is overstretched or torn. This usually occurs as a result of fatigue, overuse, or improper use of a muscle. Strains can happen in any muscle, but they’re most common in your lower back, neck, shoulder, and hamstring..
Sciatica refers to back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something injures or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and leg.
Shin splints (medial tibial stress syndrome) is an inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your tibia. Pain typically occurs along the inner border of the tibia, where muscles attach to the bone.
Shoulder pain and popping is one of the most common causes of missed workouts. Shoulder injuries are incredibly popular among gym goers, but not surprising when you consider the amount of mobility the shoulder joint has and the many ways we abuse that in our training.
First, you must understand that there are many potential causes of shoulder pain when working out. Most often however it comes from an imbalance between the internal and external rotators of the shoulder.
Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses. Stress is a normal part of life. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts.
Lateral pain is more commonly referred to as tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is definitely one of the most common orthopedic sources of pain that can crush your ability to effectively workout let alone get through your day. The problem with tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis as it is more formerly known, is that the cure and treatment for it are often misguided.
The first thing you have to realize is that the cause of pain is very seldom coming from the actual place that you are hurting! In the case of tennis elbow, the source of your symptoms is almost always going to be somewhere other than in your elbow. Just like in the knee, the elbow is a hinge joint with very little motion. Its function is dictated by the biomechanics available in the more mobile joints above and below it (the shoulder and wrist in this case).
Tendinitis, also known as tendonitis, is the inflammation of a tendon. It happens when a person overuses or injures a tendon, for example, during sport. It is normally linked to an acute injury with inflammation. It often affects the elbow, wrist, finger, thigh, and other parts of the body.
What are the most likely causes of upper back pain? Pain in the upper back is usually the result of poor posture, muscle overuse, or injury.
Neck strain is often just called whiplash. Although it’s usually associated with car accidents, any impact or blow that causes your head to jerk forward or backward can cause neck strain. The sudden force stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in your neck.
Wrist and forearm pain are a common complaint among lifters. Many people who lift weights will feel pain on the inside of their wrists that can often times travel down the inside portion of their forearm. First, it’s important to understand what causes the wrist and forearm pain when curling.
