Overuse or Work-Related Injuries
Overuse injuries are common in professions that require the individual to perform repetitive tasks on a daily basis. This can range from the classic repetitive strain injuries (RSI) now referred to as OOS (occupational over-use syndrome) injuries associated with working in administrative positions and dental work to those working on construction sites lifting heavy objects or mixing cement.
The goal in treating these conditions is to ensure proper blood flow and optimal range of movement is possible to the affected areas. In addition, a regime of stretching and strengthening of specific muscles will be prescribed providing the individual with tools that will help them manage the repetitive nature of their professions.
