Using a combination of tissue release, manipulation, traction, ultrasound and movement and exercise, osteopathy can help to ease pain and stiffness and prevent future injuries or pain attacks by strengthening the spine and neck muscles.

Wrist and Repetitive Strain Injury

  • Do you find that you are having more hand and wrist pain in todays climate of constant use of
    electronic devices
  • Does the pain in your hands restrict you from doing activities of normal daily life such as opening jars
    or tinned food and drinks?
  • Is the pain limiting your ability to do your job properly
    It is important to have early diagnosis and management of injuries in the hands, as your hands and wrists are key in enabling you to function normally in your day-to-day life.

    Some simple techniques to help alleviate the pain are

  • taking regular breaks from using electronic devices through out the day
  • stretch the muscles of your forearms by putting the fingers and palms of your hands
    together in front of your chest and gently pushing your wrists downwards.
  • Use alternating hot and cold hand baths to improve circulation, relax muscles and reduce
    swelling and pain.

Osteopaths can assess the root cause of your pain and provide the necessary treatment to alleviate it. Treatment may involve massage, joint mobilization, stretching and exercises, as well as advice on ergonomics (assessment of your working environment) and posture. Ergonomics are especially important in today’s society where more people are working form home and are not using good desks and chairs.

Treatment may also be of areas outside the immediate area of pain such as the shoulder and neck and thoracic area of the back if the osteopath assesses these to be contributing or causing the pain.

Osteopathy provides a holistic treatment for back pain using diverse techniques to relieve pain and treat a variety of problems. These techniques include:

Massage - free restrictions and areas of tightness within muscles, massage addresses the whole body so as to restore its vitality. The osteopath may also use traction, where your head, feet, and hands are slightly lifted and pulled to relieve stress.

Spinal manipulation - used to help restore movement to a joint or threat asymmetry in a facet joint.

Muscle energy technique - with this technique, the patient uses his or her muscles in a specific direction and from a precise position against a counterforce applied by the osteopath.

Counterstrain technique - this technique implies the patient being moved away from a position where movement is restricted to one of greater comfort

Cranial osteopathy - a form of gentle bodywork addressing the bones of the head and spinal column.

These treatments increase and restore joint mobility by reducing pain and stiffness in muscles and joints, as well as improving blood flow and enhancing tissue elasticity. The cause of pain differs from one individual to another and therefore treatment of other body areas such as the neck, the hips, or the knees may be necessary to allievate the back pain.
