Treating Repetitive Strain Injury ( RSI ) at the Oxford & Weybridge OSIC

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is an umbrella term given to a group of conditions affecting the muscles, tendons, nerves and other soft tissues of the body. Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD) is a form of RSI.

Many individuals suffer with musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain & arm pain to name a few) which may be attributed, at least in part, to their work. These problems can be significantly reduced by assessing, and where possible, reducing the level of risk associated with work. By addressing posture, movement and intensity and frequency of activities, you may experience symptom relief and understand how best to prevent the onset of RSI.

There are many common and well-defined RSI related conditions affecting the upper limbs:
Fingers, hands and arms are vulnerable to injury through overuse    and this maybe compounded by poor posture, twisting, cold,    vibration or 'repetitive strain'.
Repeated flexion and extension of the wrist can cause    inflammation of tendons, leading to pressure on the median nerve    and the associated numbness, burning and tingling symptoms are    known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Tennis elbow is the result of muscle overuse or inflammation of    the tendons at the point where they attach to the bone.
Tenosynovitis is a recognised industrial injury for occupations    involving repetitive clerical or assembly line work.
Your working environment is an important consideration and ergonomic guidelines aim to find the ideal workspace to suit you and the type of work that you do. Through their expertise in musculo-skeletal function and movement, our Osteopaths at the Oxford & Weybridge clinics are able to make recommendations about your working environment.

Osteopathic treatment for Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) at the Oxford & Weybridge clinics may include spinal mobilisation, soft tissue techniques for muscles, neural tissue mobilisation & postural muscle strengthening. The objective is to identify the tissues under 'repetitive' strain, determine the cause, treat the condition and address the cause so that the potential for reoccurrence is minimal.
