Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI’s) are injuries that are sustained from doing repetitious activities. For example doing any of the following for a significant amount of time; sitting at a computer, holding a baby on your hip, lifting overhead, leaning over a car engine, quilting and sewing, gardening, sitting in an unnatural position, playing an instrument, dancing, etc.

Repetitive movements can cause pain, fatigue, strain, adhesions, scar tissue, trigger points and even nerve entrapment– which can lead to more pain that can become chronic.

My treatments are geared toward releasing myofascial adhesions, decreasing trigger points and scar tissue and freeing up nerves that may be entrapped. In addition, I show you ways to modify your body mechanics as well as give you at-home self care instructions.

Patients that do the recommended self care techniques at home typically resolve their symptoms faster than those who don’t.
