Treatment For Repetitive Strain Injuries
Repetitive strain injuries are caused by repetitive movements. These injuries are seen in a wide range of individuals from office workers to weekend warrior athletes. The repetitive movements result in microscopic tearing in muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissue structures. Over time the person is likely to feel a progression of pain, tenderness, aching or numbness in the affected area.
Athletes or Active Living?
Do you participate in organized or recreational sport? Have you ever trained for a marathon or triathlon? Do you enjoy paddling or water skiing at the cottage? Do you walk on a regular basis with your dog or a friend? If you are active, Massage Therapy, sports therapy, and Active Release Techniques can benefit you.
Do you spend long hours sitting at a desk? Does time in front of a computer make your arms, neck and shoulders ache? Are you on your feet all day at work and suffer from foot or back pain? Any repetitive motion you do at work can cause an overuse injury. Massage therapy, sports therapy, and Active Release Techniques can diminish pain and reduce the risk of further injury.
