Repetitive Strain Injury Treatment in Fulham at Fulham Osteopaths

Common Causes Of Repetitive Strain Injury

RSI affects many parts of our body, painfully restricting our movement and enjoyment of life. The main causes & affected areas include:
Repeating the same activities and movements without rest
Fatigue of the muscles, ligaments and tendons caused by over straining
A resulting lack of blood supply
RSI commonly affects: Wrists, fingers, elbows, shoulders, hips, feet and even your back.

Repetitive Strain (RSI) Explained In Plain English

RSI ranges from a niggle to a constant burning pain.

It happens when we micro-injure our tissues, enough that some repair work is required. This is the normal way the body works. If we don’t rest the injury, or if our system is weakened by stress, poor diet etc, the problem gets worse, till eventually even rest doesn’t help.

Sometimes your body can get on top of the inflammation and swelling, but more often the problem doesn’t get better properly and feels raw, painful or vulnerable so you can't participate in normal activities.

Reacting early to RSI prevents increasing pain and further complications happening over time, and will help keep you doing the things you love.

Major Causes Of RSI

We've already dealt with some of the common causes such as stress or overuse.. However, let’s dive in a little deeper to see which RSI conditions Osteopathic care provides a safe non surgical solution for:


Here the tendons and tissues which connect our muscles to our bones cannot repair fast enough and get swollen and sore. This includes Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis and Golfers elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Shin Splints

Here overuse of the shin muscles creates a swollen, irritated area, also known as compartment syndrome. Often found in runners, it is complicated by a mindset that pushes through pain.

Plantar Fasciitis

Here tissues across the sole of the foot, sometimes especially where it meets the heel, are overstressed, chronically tight and inflamed, and very painful.

How Does An Osteopath Treat RSI?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and knowledge to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. Years of training and experience help to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. This is especially true with RSI. We just get your body working properly again by aligning everything, and deeply relaxing the tissues without adding more irritation.

Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing. Healing comes naturally without drugs or surgery meaning you can naturally enjoy the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
