Repetitive Strain Injuries - Causes and Available Treatments

Repetitive Strain Injuries

It's pretty common for people who do repetitive jobs to be pain in or around the area of overuse. Reptitive strain injuries also include injuries due to sitting and working at a desk. It can also affect somebody who repetitively does some kind of action with force.

Here are some samples or injuries associated with Repetitive strain.

  • Hitting a tennis ball
  • Using a power tool
  • Hammering a nail
  • Using a spanner
  • Painting
  • Running
  • Rowing
  • Kicking

Osteopaths, physiotherapsist and chiropractors often see individuals with repetiutive strain injuries.

An Example: Golfer's Elbow

What happens is the over strain (by repetition or overreach) of the tendons around the elbow joint become slowly more and more overloaded.

These then become inflamed. The tendons at this stage of inflammation are trying to repair themselves. However, they have usually got beyond the point at which they can repair on their own. It’s significant to point out at this early stage it is easier for them to repair than 4 weeks 8 weeks or more down the line.

We are experts and treating these stained muscles and tendons. We use osteopathic hands on treatment and physiotherapy exercises.

In North Yorkshire and the North East we get to see a lot of repetitive strain injuries and physical injuries of the body.

We have seen a large increase in the number of injuries associated with those who sit more during the day. As a clinic we are developing ways for both chronic and acute pain sufferers to manage these issues longer term.

In 2019 we will start using a medical device that helps to reduce inflation and restore damaged (acute or chronic) tissues. This technology as been around for many years but has been the choice of top-flight football teams and athletes until now. Click here to find out more about laser therapy.

The pain you have now is often a sign of steadily developing physical issues that started 10, 20 or prehaps more than 30 years ago.

In most cases we can prevent even the most serious of these problems developing into unmanageable and life changing conditions.

Recently people have woken up to the reality that prevention is always better than cure. I’m glad to say that more than 95% of my patients agree with their experiences of preventitive treatment.

We do not use a crystal ball than tells us the outcome of every individual. However, we do have the evidence that more people are turning to osteopathic treatments due to their own or their friend's experiences.
