Prevent RSI

Repetitive Strain/Stress Injuries (RSIs) refers to a medical condition where certain muscles, tendons and nerves within the body sustain gradual damage due to repetitive use. These injuries often end up causing diminished productivity, effectiveness and efficiency for the affected individual.

RSIs can be caused by a wide range of activities which include (but are not limited to):

• Training for sports activities
• Grasping of mechanical tools
• Typing on a computer
• Working at an continuous assembly line for example at a factory or at a checkout station

Though RSIs can affect any part of the body they commonly tend to afflict the nerves, tendons and muscles found in the upper body including the wrists and hands, forearms and elbows, and, the neck and shoulders. Some of the RSIs commonly diagnosed among patients in Acworth and Atlanta include:

• Tennis elbow
• Rotator cuff tendonitis
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Bursitis

If you have employees or work in an industry/profession where you are likely to suffer from RSIs for example if you are an athlete, you can easily avoid gradually damaging your muscles, tendons and nerves by receiving repetitive injury prevention education from highly trained professional chiropractors and physical therapists like our team at Elite Total Wellness.

As we mentioned earlier, there are many types of RSIs that you can suffer from. At Elite Wellness, we tailor each repetitive injury prevention education program to cater for the needs of each individual client. This means that if you are an athlete, your program will entail training on how you can avoid causing damage to your muscles and nerves based on the specific training activities that you frequently undertake.

Note that our repetitive injury prevention education program is not just tailored to help you from gradually damaging muscles when you undertake repetitive tasks, rather we comprehensively tailor the program to ensure your better wholesome health.

Individuals who work in industries where they often undertake repetitive tasks such as sports athletes, workers in line manufacturing plants and supermarket attendants are prime candidates for this education program since they are at high risk of suffering from RSIs.

Note that the effect of RSIs are often felt gradually. Depending on the severity of damage to your muscles and nerves, you may experience the following symptoms:

• Muscle tenderness
• Swelling in the affected area
• Stiffness
• Pain (can range from mild to severe)
• Muscle weakness
• Tingling
• Throbbing in the affected areas

The injury prevention education that we offer will not only help in preventing the above RSI symptoms from occurring but they will also help any prevailing symptoms you may be exhibiting from exacerbating.

 What To Expect 

If you visit our wellness center complaining about discomfort when carrying out tasks that you would ordinarily handle with ease, our team of experts will first ask you detailed questions in order to understand your line of work and the repetitive actions you may be carrying out which may predispose you to RSIs. Next we will carry out a comprehensive exam to determine your reflex levels, if you have any inflammation as well as your levels of strength in the affected muscles/areas.

Based on the results of the tests, our team will then move ahead to tailor exercise regimens that will help you avoid straining the affected areas as you undertake your daily activities. We will also offer you specialist advice on changes you can make at your specific workplace for optimal body health. Our team will continue to carefully monitor your progress and adjust your training to reflect your ongoing needs.

Remember that RSIs which have the ability to dim your productivity can be stopped in their tracks with our repetitive injury prevention education training.
