RSI and Chiropractic Treatment and Prevention

 

Our team at The Clanfield Chiropractic Clinic see a large number of members presenting with this condition. Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is an umbrella term used to describe a range of conditions, which can develop due to a gradual build-up of tension and overuse in our muscles, tendons and joints because of everyday activities and stresses.

 It is usually related to a job or occupation such as typing but it can also be associated with leisure activities such as playing sport or music and everyday house chores. Some common RSI's include rotator cuff impingement, tennis elbow, iliotibial band syndrome and plantar fasciitis

 Our chiropractor works closely with our Sport Massage therapist to design a treatment programme tailored to your specific condition. This may involve a combination of any of the following:

  • Manipulation or mobilization of the surrounding joints which not only increases the available movement at these joints and thus eases the load on the muscles and tendons
  • Deep tissue therapy like cross friction massage, trigger point and myofascial release therapy) to reduce any fibrous adhesions (knots) and tension which may have developed within the musculature, may help to speed up the healing time and improve the quality of the scar tissue.
  • Soft tissue therapy relaxes the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joint
  • Exercise to restore normal biomechanics of the joint

Most importantly, our chiropractic health team will give you postural and ergonomic advice, and a home rehabilitative program to help reduce the likelihood of recurrence.

If you’re unsure whether chiropractic treatment is the right option for you, then please come in for a free consultation and examination, where we can discuss the reason for your health concern and see if we may be able to help.  To book this free consultation please contacts the clinic on 02392005136.
