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:
pain
Repeating the same activities and movements without rest
pain
Fatigue of the muscles, ligaments and tendons caused by over straining
pain
A resulting lack of blood supply
pain
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:

Tendonitis

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.

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
