With a repetitive stress condition, the pain usually comes on without a specific incident, gradually over time. The patient will typically just wake up one day and notice that something just doesn’t feel right.
The top three repetitive stress injuries that I see are:
- Technology neck
- Degenerative arthritis
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Creating a care plan that would improve structural alignment and function is vital to helping the body to heal. That care plan would consist of chiropractic care, strengthening and stretching exercises, and instructions on proper posture and ergonomics.
