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

How Physiomed Can Help

Anything that forces a person into using muscles in an unnatural position, or by performing the same movement excessively can lead to repetitive strain injuries. It’s important to address these issues before they develop into more serious conditions. Fortunately, most Repetitive Strain Injuries respond well to treatment. Physiomed will assess your condition and recommend a treatment plan that combines passive treatments with active therapies to restore natural movement and relieve pain.

If you have the symptoms of a repetitive strain injury, we can help. Book an appointment today.

If you’re wearing a mask all day you already know how uncomfortable they can be — primarily the elastic that settles into your ear. These ear savers really do make a difference!
