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’ve seen several osteopaths at Fulham Osteopaths over the past 3 years. All have been excellent and assisted with pain in pregnancy, migraines and back/neck tension . Staff is also friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice!

Wonderful, wonderful staff and excellent results. It was my first time starting an ongoing osteo programme and the progress has been huge. It's given me the freedom of my body back.

My experience with Giulia is incredibly positive. I have suffered from chronic back pain and coccydinia for over two years and have seen many different specialists during that time. Since I started working with Giulia I have seen by far the strongest improvement in my conditions. Our weekly craniosacral therapy appointments have definitely reduced the pain in my back and clearly improved my overall posture. I am really happy with the progress and will continue to see her in the future. I could not recommend her enough.

Amazing experience when we brought our newborn son. Katie was super knowledgeable and made us feel as ease straight away. She helped ease any concerns and the osteopath treatment was brilliant. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough for baby and parent.

We have been seeing Melinda with our little one since he was 3 weeks. After the first session, I noticed a significant improvement in his latch and posture. We have really appreciated the small exercises suggested which we can leverage to keep improving. Also, the little videos are a really kind extra thought, and helps us remember things we may have forgotten after the session (especially with the lack of sleep). Melinda has been a wealth of knowledge at every session, and our little one is so calm in her presence.
