Altitude

Training and

Overuse Injuries

In this chapter you will learn about:

  • Treatment and prevention of injuries.
  • When to seek medical care.
  • Returning to duty.
  • Overtraining syndrome.

One of the hazards of physical training is becoming injured. Sustaining either a sudden injury or an overuse injury can mean loss of work days, forced rest, and pain for a period of days to weeks. The goal of this chapter is not to have you treat your own injuries, but rather to be informed so that you will seek appropriate help when needed.
