Repetitive Strain Injury Treatment

Repetitive Strain Injuries refer to injuries caused by overuse, excessive strain, uncomfortable positions or repeated movement. The most common causes of Repetitive Strain Injuries are sports injuries, such as “Tennis elbow” and workplace injuries, as a result of demanding physical labour or simple things like typing on a computer or smartphone. Repetitive strain injuries affect the tendons, tendon sheaths, muscles, nerves and joints, most commonly causing pain in the neck, shoulders, elbows, hands, wrists or lower limbs.

Symptoms of Repetitive Strain Injuries include:
  • Dull, aching pain, which may be worse at night
  • Numbness, tingling or burning sensations
  • Swelling around the hands or wrists
  • Reduced dexterity
