Repetitive Strain Injuries: Finding Effective Relief with Osteopathy

Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) are more common than you might think, and they can bring substantial pain, often disrupting work, sports, and hobbies. These injuries frequently target specific areas, such as the shoulders (when reaching up), elbows (when lifting objects), and the back of the ankles (when descending stairs). While doctors may prescribe painkillers and anti-inflammatories, these medications often only provide temporary relief. Once you stop taking them, the pain often returns because the root cause remains unaddressed.

But did you know that osteopathic treatment offers an effective solution for treating these repetitive strains? By focusing on muscle relaxation and enhancing joint mobility, osteopathy can significantly alleviate the discomfort. Additionally, our osteopaths develop long-term plans to prevent the recurrence of these conditions, ensuring lasting relief and improved well-being.

Some common repetitive strain injuries that patients have sought osteopathic assistance for include:

  • Golfer's Elbow
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Impingement of the Rotator Cuff Muscles in the Shoulder
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Patellar Tendinitis (Jumper's Knee)
  • IT Band Syndrome/Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner's Knee)
