Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain and Elbow Pain Could be Signs of Repetitive Strain Injuries
Repetitive strain injuries occur in people who develop pain or impairment in the soft tissues due to frequent performance of repetitive actions. Initially, these injuries may cause few or no symptoms. Over time, however, the body will begin to show signs of damage, which often leads to impaired mobility, stiffness and pain.
Today’s repetitive strain injuries are different than they once were. New lifestyle habits contribute to all types of strains on the body that were unheard of just a couple of decades ago. For example, the nearly constant use of cell phones can put significant strain on the arms, contributing to shoulder pain and elbow pain. For those who choose to text instead of talk, looking down at the phone frequently throughout each day can lead to upper back strain and neck pain.
It is not just cell phones that lead to repetitive strain injuries. In fact, we often see patients who have developed tissue damage after months or even years of repetitious movements at work. People who type or rely on their hands for work, such as hair stylists, can develop carpal tunnel syndrome and other conditions that lead to chronic pain. Of course, sports and athletics are also the source of many repetitive stress injuries. Some injuries, such as tennis elbow and swimmer’s shoulder, are even named after the sport in which they notoriously occur.

Here at Back to Health Center, we are proud to offer comprehensive care and treatment for patients with repetitive strain injuries. We know how painful these conditions can be and the chronic discomfort they may cause. We utilize a variety of treatments and techniques to address the source of neck, shoulder and elbow pain and prevent it from returning in the future.
Since repetitive strain injuries are often related to soft tissue and nerve damage, we find that a combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and even cold laser therapy may provide the relief our patients seek. With multiple doctors on staff at our office, you can trust that you are in good hands at Back to Health Center.
Many of our patients feel better after just a few treatments, especially if they make lifestyle changes that facilitate healing. This may include adopting a better posture, wearing a support brace at work, taking breaks throughout the day, and lead a healthy, active lifestyle. All of our services are holistic in nature and designed to treat repetitive strain injuries at their source, rather than just the symptoms.
If you think you have a repetitive strain injury, contact a chiropractor in Alexandria to schedule an appointment and consultation. At Back to Health Center, we will evaluate your symptoms and determine the most effective course of treatment to eliminate pain and restore full function to your shoulder, neck, elbow or any other area that may be damaged or inflamed.
