What is Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)?

In the UK, 1 in every 50 workers has reported experiencing a repetitive strain injury condition at some point. Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a condition which causes nerves, tendon and muscle pain, and is often associated with doing a repetitive activity for long periods. The upper body is largely affected by stiffness and swelling mainly felt in the forearms, elbows, wrists, hands, back and shoulders. While RSI is often due to strenuous occupational and leisure activities, it can also be caused as a result of working with computers and typing.  

 

Names associated with RSI

At CT Clinic Manchester, we often treat people suffering from RSI which is categorised as type 1 or type 2 RSI. 

Type 1, includes Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow, Rotator Cuff Syndrome and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. 

Type 2, is classed as non-specific or diffuse pain. 

 

What are the symptoms of Repetitive Strain Injury?

At CT Clinic Manchester, our RSI patients always report feeling pain in the upper body with symptoms including:

• Sharp or dull pain

• Numbness

• Throbbing

• Tingling 

• Tightness/cramp

• Tenderness in your muscles and joints

At first, the symptoms may only be felt when undertaking the repetitive task but gradually, over time the symptoms worsen and can be experienced during times of rest. This impacts on your capability to carry out work and leisure.  

 

What causes Repetitive Strain Injury?

• Repetitive activities.

• Performing activities that involve the use of force or lifting heavy objects.

• Carrying out an activity for a long period without taking a break.

• Carrying out activities that cause you to be in an awkward position.

• Poor posture, especially for office/desk based roles.

• Working in a cold environment.

 

Tips to ease the pain of RSI 

1. It is important to rest the affected area regularly, but not for long period as this can make the situation worse by weakening muscles. 

2. Gently massaging the affected limb will stimulate circulation and keep the muscle strong.

3. Taking regular and short breaks to move and stretch the muscles.

4. Altering your activities so that you are not doing the same task repetitively.

5. Engaging in exercise such as pilates, yoga or swimming will help ease symptoms.

As we age, our focus naturally shifts to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and remaining as active as possible to enjoy our remaining years, pain (and drama-free).

How does your job make you feel? Happy? Empowered? Content? How about sore? Some jobs, such as those of manual workers - bricklayers, floor fitters, warehousing will cause workers a degree of pain due to the physical nature of the role. However, it is surprising that many workers believe this is just part and parcel of their job and they need to live with the pain.

Why should anyone be content living with pain?

In fact, continually putting a strain on your muscles and joints could end your career earlier than expected due to health concerns - and it's not just workers of a certain age that experience work-related pain!

This week, we welcomed a young, fit and healthy patient to CT Clinic Manchester who had been suffering from intense lower back pain. As you will see from the video, this patient could barely get out of the car. Using our revolutionary COPA Therapy treatment, the patient experienced immediate relief and was able to regain normal muscle movement within the session.

At CT Clinic, 95% of our patients notice huge differences, even after just the first session. We treat the most complicated of chronic and acute pain episodes and deliver results even in cases where general medicine and therapy have failed.

We don't give up on you, instead, we work with you to eliminate the pain for good!
