A main reason why people come see a Chiropractor is due to repetitive strain injuries (RSI). RSI is a condition resulting in pain of the muscles, joints and nerves due to repetitive activity and overuse. Patients generally experience this pain in their upper body such as in their neck, back, shoulders and down into their hands.
The new buzzword ‘text neck’ is used to describe a type of RSI due to spending many hours hunched over and starring into our smart phones. ‘Sitting is the new smoking’ is also a new term being used to alert people to the harms of sitting for prolonged periods resulting in not just back and other bodily pains but also negatively affecting a person’s overall health and wellness.
