Therapeutic Resources

If you are experiencing symptoms of Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD), also known as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) that last more than 2-3 days, it is important that you seek appropriate treatment. Hopefully you will have already treated the early warning signs by following our suggestions for self-care.

Because of the complexity and subtle differences between disorders, physicians don't always diagnose CTD correctly or easily. The most knowledgeable medical specialists for CTD are generally considered to be physiatrists, or physical medicine specialists. These doctors do not provide treatment, however. You will need "physical therapy" to facilitate the healing of your soft tissues. By releasing chronic muscle tension, therapy will restore function by improving blood flow. Healing will only begin once the muscle tension has diminished. "Physical therapy" can be provided by physical and occupational therapists (PT/OT), chiropractors (DC) with training in CTD treatment, and certified massage therapists (CMT). These practitioners specialize in soft tissue conditions.

The Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics website,www.aoec.org is a goodresource for locating clinics throughout the U.S. which usually arewell-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of repetitive straininjuries.

The resources we have listed below are practitioners in the San Francisco Bay Area who have been recommended to us from satisfied clients. We neither endorse nor recommend these particular practitioners. You are encouraged to make personal decisions based on your own needs and research.

If you live outside of the San Francisco Bay Area and do not have a primaryphysician, contact your insurance provider to find a physiatrist in yourarea. To see a specialist in an HMO system, you need to request areferral from your primary care physician. Physical and OccupationalTherapists need a referral from a medical doctor (MD) to providetreatment. To find a doctor or other medical practitionergo to https://www.healthgrades.com/find-a-doctor or http://doctor.webmd.com/.

If you would prefer to see an alternative therapist (i.e., anyprovider other than a M.D.), you will need to do a little research. Agood website to consult if you are considering alternative therapy iswww.healthy.netand click on the link to alternative medicine, then the link to the Alternative Resource Center. To find a chiropractor outside the San Francisco Bay Area, check the website of the American Chiropractic Association: http://www.acatoday.org/patients/index.cfm.

The most effective form of treatment for CTD involves deep tissue work to break up fibrous tissue and lengthen tense muscles. Posture retraining, upper body conditioning, and spinal alignment are also successful.

How do you decide which type of practitioner is appropriate for your problem?

  • Chiropractic treatment relieves any discomfort, including headaches, associated with muscle tension and other soft tissue injuries. Appropriate spinal adjustment should be made only after muscles have been relaxed. If you have experienced spinal injury, x-rays should be taken prior to treatment. An appropriately trained chiropractor will correctly diagnose and treat CTD.

  • Consult a physiatrist if you would prefer to see a MD. You can seek "physical therapy" only after you receive a referral from the physiatrist.

  • Acupuncture restores function to damaged tissue by stimulating certain areas along known energy pathways, called meridians. This method of treatment has been tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today.

  • A physical or occupational therapist provides evaluation and education, as well as rehabilitation after an injury. Strengthening exercises are used to increase, restore, or maintain range of motion, physical strength, and endurance.

  • Schedule a regular appointment with a massage therapist if you have chronic muscle aches. Massage also enhances chiropractic treatment, often extending the value of the chiropractic adjustment. There are many types of massage. Deep tissue massage tends to work on releasing tight muscles while Rolfing and Integrative Bodywork tend to work on the fascia surrounding muscles and the rest of the body to balance and bring the body into better alignment. We suggest that you research the various types of massage and decide what is best for you...or try several to see what works best.

  • Alternative Therapies such as the Alexander Technique, Restorative Therapy, Structural Integration, and Feldenkrais, improve posture and movement. These techniques promote a valuable body awareness essential of painfree living.
