Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive Strain Injuries is an umbrella term used to describe a number of specific injuries caused by the repeated movement of a particular part of the body and commonly affects nerves, tendons and muscles. The incidence of this type of injury is becoming more widespread as many jobs now require people to make repetitive actions such as typing, or clicking a computer mouse. These injuries are often caused when stress is placed on a joint due to the same action being performed over and over. Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic will help you resolve your pain and get you back to full function. Physiotherapy treatments may consist of manual therapy, taping, electrotherapy and exercise prescription to accelerate healing and reduce pain. In addition, your chartered physiotherapist can advise you on correct ergonomic set-up of your work-station which can prevent future reoccurrence of a Repetitive Strain Injury.

 

Neck and Back Pain

Neck and back pain are common work-related injuries due to the sedentary nature of modern day professions. Prolonged driving, sitting and computer use are the main causes for neck and back pain as workers have a tendency to adopt unfavourable postures for lengthy periods on a daily basis.

Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic will help resolve your neck and/or back pain through various manual therapy and electrotherapy treatments. However, your chartered physiotherapist can also play an important role in preventing reoccurrence of such injuries through exercise prescription, posture correction and advising on the ergonomic set-up of your workspace.
