Chiropractic Care for Repetitive Motion Injuries

Chiropractors help people prevent repetitive motion injuries and also help treat them when they occur. Chiropractors can remove interferences in the nervous system which allows the body to function at it’s best and also heal and recover faster.

What type of injuries are considered repetitive motion injuries and what are the typical symptoms people should be aware of?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Things like tennis elbow, bursitis, stress fractures are a few examples of repetitive motion injuries. They occur when a person makes multiple repetitive motions that could lean to imbalances in the muscles, tendons, ligaments. Most typical symptoms would be pain, swelling, and possibly stiffness.

Can chiropractors diagnose a repetitive motion injury?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Chiropractors can diagnose subluxations in the spine, which can be caused by repetitive motion injuries, and we can help to alleviate the symptoms of repetitive injuries by removing the subluxations.

Could you describe the treatments and therapies chiropractors use to help treat people with repetitive motion injuries?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Chiropractors will adjust the spine and possibly some extremities to remove interference in the nervous system to allow the body to restore proper function. This allows the person to heal from repetitive motion injuries.

How would ongoing chiropractic visits help someone avoid re-injuring themselves or even help prevent a new repetitive motion injury?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Ongoing chiropractic adjustments would help a person to keep proper function in their nervous system. This would give that person the ability to adapt better to repetitive motion stresses. If a person is able to adapt better to those stresses, then they’re less likely to re-injure those areas of their body.

What are some ongoing exercises, stretches and therapies people should do to prevent repetitive motion injuries?

Dr. Ben Rauch: Ongoing chiropractic care would be the most important thing they could do. Followed up with some stretches and maybe some heat and cold therapies. Each individual person might need something different in their care plan to get the best results to prevent these injuries.
