Treatment for Repetitive Strain Injuries in San Leandro
A strain is when a muscle or tendon is pushed too far, resulting in stretching, tearing and other damage to the affected area. Strains can occur anywhere there are muscles or tendons, but common areas include the hands/wrists, neck, back, shoulders and lower extremities. Repetitive strains are usually caused by work-related or athletic movements. If you have reoccurring muscle injuries, come see us at Allied Pain & Spine Institute. Our medical team offers treatment for repetitive strain injuries in San Leandro, CA.
Repetitive damage to the same muscles or tendons can result in ongoing pain, weakness, restricted mobility and other problems. When the tissue is not allowed to heal completely, there may be inflammation and other complications that can affect the surrounding nerves, causing pain, numbness, tingling, weakness and loss of coordination. The specific symptoms depend on the area of the body affected and the extent of the injury.
Causes of Repetitive Strains
Work-related repetitive strains are very common. From carpal tunnel syndrome to lower back strains, workers from many different types of jobs can suffer from repetitive motion injuries. These work injuries can cause chronic pain and impact the ability to perform work duties as well as other daily activities.
Playing sports or leisure activities can also result in repetitive strains. Tennis and golfer’s elbow are examples of repetitive strains that can cause pain and mobility issues. Rotator cuff injuries from throwing or racket sports are also common repetitive strains that may require treatment.
