Acupuncture for RSI

RSI stands for Repetitive Strain Injury and is a collective term for pain complaints due to chronic overload. Familiar examples of RSI include mouse arm, tennis elbow, and text thumb. The complaints usually occur in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands. RSI is also known as CANS (Complaints of Arm, Neck and Shoulder). There are no medications for RSI, but acupuncture can alleviate or even completely resolve RSI symptoms. RSI is common among people who repeatedly make certain movements or maintain the same postures for a long time during work.

What can acupuncture do for RSI?

In RSI, there is an energy blockage in certain parts of the body. This blockage can be lifted by treatment with acupuncture. Acupuncture treatment stimulates blood circulation, thereby nourishing the muscles and joints. Acupuncture also enhances the overall immune system, reducing symptoms immediately. The number of treatments needed greatly depends on the severity of the symptoms. The number of treatments is always tailored in consultation with your specialist acupuncturist. In addition to treatment with acupuncture, the cause of RSI symptoms must be addressed to prevent you from encountering the same problem again.

Tips to prevent RSI

Prevention is always better than cure. You can do a few things yourself to prevent RSI or to address beginning RSI symptoms in time. First, the (work) situation causing RSI needs to be improved. It is also advisable to take frequent short breaks and move more. You can also do stretching exercises to address the tension in the muscles and joints. Heat can also help your muscles relax.
