Repetitive Strain Injury

Signs and Symptoms:
Pain in an area associated with a particular activity and movement.


Usually near a joint where a tendon/ligament attaches. 


Common Causes:
Sports, weight lifting, computer work, office jobs, manual jobs, jobs involving repetitive use/lifting, nerve pain, post traumatic sprains/strains. The area can be very tender to touch.

How We Can Help:

We would examine the spine, your overall structure, muscles, joints, nerves and movement patterns. Once we pin point the root of the problem, we can adjust the spine and correct any structural issues. We would often advise upon specific exercises to strengthen, mobilise and rehabilitate any identified weaknesses and improve movement patterns to keep it as healthy as possible.


Sometimes imaging and onward referral is necessary to establish the extent of the injury.


With repetitive strain mechanisms it is important to avoid as many aggravating factors as possible to reduce the inflammatory triggers and assist in the healing phase.


Massage can often be a great help to reduce soft tissue pains associated with a repetitive injury.
