Chiropractic for Repetitive Stress Disorder
Repetitive Stress Disorder.
Understanding repetitive stress disorder and how you could help relieve and manage it with routine chiropractic care.
What is Repetitive Stress Disorder?
Repetitive Stress Disorder is an overuse injury that occurs when excessive amounts of stress or strain has been placed on a particular part of the body resulting in either pain, swelling, muscle strain or tissue damage. Repetitive Stress Disorders are in the same family as strains, sprains, and repetitive motion injuries. These kind of injuries are particularly common for those whose job requires repetitive motion or those who play various sports or musical instruments at high intensity. But, be cautious because repetitive stress disorders result in nearly 50 percent of work-related injuries.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those with Repetitive Stress Disorder?
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and pain caused by repetitive stress disorder. Routine chiropractic care provides patients with repetitive motion injuries a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain and swelling.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by repetitive stress disorder.
Below are some of the health benefits chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments can provide patients with repetitive motion injuries:
- Improved joint motion and coordination
- Delief from joint discomfot and pain
- Improved flexibility
- Decreased Inflammation
To see if chiropractic care is right for your condition, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic will perform a consultation, examination and if necessary, refer you out for diagnostic imaging such as x-ray or MRI. Based on the findings of our chiropractic exam and consultation, your doctor of chiropractic may elect to co-treat your repetitive stress disorder with other healthcare professionals including massage therapists, physical therapists or other primary care physicians.
