There are a wide range of injury types that fall into the repetitive stress injury category. These are typically caused by repetitive motions, poor positioning, mechanical devices, exertions, and vibrations that affect a specific part of the body.
Pain typically occurs at the site and you may suffer from pain as you are performing a specific action. If the pain occurs with movement, tenderness doesn’t go away, or your regular activities are interrupted, you should seek medical help.
With so many different stress related injuries, chiropractors have to be able to adapt their treatment to the patient. Often, work duties or recreational activities are the culprit. Everyone is unique, so the treatment plan must also be unique for each patient. Common repetitive injury issues are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis/ Golfers Elbow, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Tendinitis, and pain / Edema at various locations.
