In a world of increasing technology and computer based work, many people spend their time carrying out repetitive, small and precise movements such as typing, texting or drawing.
Such patterns of movement can often lead to repetitive strain injury (RSI), which include symptoms such as numbness and tingling, aching or shooting pains, a sense of heaviness or tiredness, and can often be difficult to pinpoint until the symptoms worsen.
If you think you may be suffering from RSI, it’s an excellent idea to take regular breaks from what you think is causing the trouble (most often computer work) and exercise frequently.
If symptoms persist, David Stringer Physiotherapy are on hand to offer your support and treatment to help you alleviate the symptoms and get back to normal. Contact us today for more information.
