Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
An initial examination of the painful area will look for tenderness and swelling, symptomatic of conditions such as Tenosynovitis or Epicondylitis. We also thoroughly examine the spine and the peripheral joint involved as well as the muscular and nervous system which are often involved.
Once a diagnosis has been established following orthopaedic and neurological testing, mobilisation and deep tissue massage aim to improve posture, stop pain and restore strength and mobility.
We help you correct the causative activities at the root of the problem with advice on changes to sporting techniques as well as height of computer screens and workstations, ergonomic seating, writing slopes, beds and car seats.
We prescribe regular corrective exercises to improve posture and relieve pain.
Assessment and treatment of involved muscles, ligaments and tendons of the joint involved this may also involve manipulation, mobilisation, soft-tissue massage therapy, and ultrasound.
