How To Recover From RSI

RSI (repetitive strain injury) is incredibly common. Its symptoms include pain, numbness, movement difficulty and trembling (usually in the wrist, elbow or fingers) as a result of a repetitive action, usually sustained over many years. Most forms of RSI are developed through work-related activities such as typing or using machinery, but they can be developed through personal hobbies and activities such as tennis, playing guitar or even texting.

It’s possible to recover from RSI, but it isn’t easy. Just as it can take many years to develop these issues, it can also take years to reverse them (although generally not as long). If you’re currently suffering from any form of RSI, here are some of the measures that you can take.

Limit trigger activities

Rather obviously, you should try limit any activities that caused your RSI in the first place. This isn’t always possible – if you work as a writer, you may not be able to limit typing without getting a new job. However, you may be able to make small changes such as putting your keyboard at the right height and positioning it straight in front of you.

Use supports and ergonomic equipment

There are forms of support that you can buy to help reduce further damage caused by certain motions. Elbow braces for example are common in tennis and can prevent/reduce ‘tennis elbow’. Similarly you may be able to switch out tools for more ergonomic options. There are modern hedge trimmers for example that have better grips and reduced vibrations to prevent development of RSI.

Try different forms of pain relief

RSI can cause chronic pain and you can make things more comfortable and manageable by trying different pain relief options. As well as over-the-counter painkillers, there could be herbal options worth looking into such as turmeric extract and full spectrum CBD oil. You could also look into holistic treatments such as massages and acupuncture.

Try low-impact exercises

Whilst you may want to avoid certain exercises, it’s important to still do some physical activity. Allowing yourself to get out of shape could make the pain of RSI worse. Try low-impact exercises such as swimming or yoga which are unlikely to aggravate the injury.

See a physiotherapist

A physiotherapist may be able to help you with stretches and exercises specific to your injury. These could help to ease the pain and even reverse the injury. Physiotherapists may also be able to give massages to joints and muscles to help ease the pain.

Talk to your doctor about treatment options

There could be medical treatment options available such as steroid injections or even carpal tunnel release surgery that can help you recover from the injury fast. These options may only be available for those with severe RSI, but it’s still something worth discussing with your doctor.

Five Little-Known Risk Factors of Sinus Infections

If you fear the winter weather, and are expecting to spend a few weeks with a terrible sinus infection, you should think about the reasons why your body is reacting this way to bacteria and viruses.

  1. Smoking and Secondhand Smoke

When you smoke, your airways will need to face constant irritation. Your lung functions at a reduced capacity, and this means that less oxygen gets in your system. Your body will not be able to fight the virus and bacteria as well as it could if you were not smoking. At the same time, the toxins of the smoke  will damage the nasal cells. You will be more likely to get respiratory illnesses and sinusitis.

  1. Asthma

When you have asthma, you will not be able to breathe at full capacity with an infection. As a result, less air will be going through your sinus, and the natural cleansing will not work. Asthma sufferers are more likely to get an inflammation of the ear and the nasal airways, as well. You will have to consult with your healthcare provider to find out how you can prevent a sinus infection.

  1. Hay Fever

If you have hay fever, you will get blocked nose from dust and pollen. This will make the mucus in your sinuses build up, causing a serious infection. Inflamed and swollen airways can make you more prone to infections, and this means you will get sinusitis more often than other people. It is important that you take your antihistamines in cold season and when viruses and bacterial infections are around.

  1. Air Conditioning

Air conditioning can make your starting sinus or ear infection worse. If the air filter in your car, home, or workplace hasn’t been cleaned or changed recently, it might be time to check whether or not this causes the problem. Air conditioning can cause serious sinusitis and even temporary or permanent hearing loss if the infection spreads to your ears. Learn more about ear infections and hearing loss to avoid the most common causes.

  1. Autoimmune Diseases

If you have any type of autoimmune disease, such as food intolerance, asthma, or diabetes, your body’s immune system will not be able to fight the infection. You might have to take antibiotics immediately to avoid serious complications, such as ear ache and infections. You need to be more careful when going out in cold weather, and wear hats and scarves every time. You need to remember that you are more vulnerable to infections and viruses than most people.

 

If you are wondering what makes you more vulnerable to sinus infections and other complications of common colds, your immune system or genetics might be to blame. At the same time, if you get fresh air regularly, and make your body adapt gradually to the change of temperature, check your air conditioning, you can prevent a few painful complications of cold, such as sinus infections.
