…I've also told people with knee and hip problems to pay attention to alignment and make sure they don't fall out of alignment. …

By the way, I also saw the term “overuse injury” creep into the article. I hate that term. Most “overuse injuries” are not caused by overuse but instead by improper use. I'd like to coin a new term, “improper use injuries”. …quote]

most of my problems seem to be 'compensation' related so would fall under the “improper use”… a few have been simple slips on ice or from not paying attention (and tripping)… could it be that what they mean by “overuse” is that as you tire your stride changes?? I keep thinking about the people who's posts I read (on other sites) who talk about running marathons with 20-30 miles per week and then wonder while they are hurt during the marathon… gee, ya think doing your whole WEEK in about five hours might have something to do with it???
