I had a very painful torn plantar fascia where it inserts into the heal. Basically I twisted my foot coming down the steps and then had to downsize from a larger house to a smaller house. I was on my feet everyday after work for a month to move which made the tear worse. Then I got misdiagnosed by my doctor who ordered no testing.. I was in agony until I found the mend me shop website. I ordered the plantar inferno wrap and have used it religiously every morning and evening and noticed a gradual improvement immediately. It also feels nice and toasty on my foot. I did finally go to the podiatrist and was in a CAM Boot for 10 weeks, along with my inferno wrap use. I know that the inferno wrap works because I felt no improvement until I started using it. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from plantar fascia pain or injury. I would say I am about 80% healed and continue to use this great product--and my physical therapist approves and has encouraged me to continue to use the product.

Repetitive Strain/Stress Injury (RSI)

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is an injury of the nervous system and musculoskeletal structure. It is caused by repetitive use of one or more muscles and joints in the body when you perform the same action over and over again.

Repetitive moving, such as scrubbing or washing, can lead to a repetitive stress injury (RSI).

A repetitive stress injury usually occurs after the age of 30 and is a result of wear and tear from the overuse of muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments as you age. These repetitive motion injuries can occur in the shoulders, back, neck, hands, hips, wrists, elbows and lower limbs. It is a general term that refers to many conditions including (but not limited to) Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, de Quervain's Disease, Writer's Cramp, Vibration White Finger, Radial Tunnel Syndrome, bursitis, tendinitis (tendonitis), tenosynovitis, and trigger finger.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is very common and is referred to by other names including: repetitive stress injury, repetitive motion injury, repetitive motion disorder (RMD), cumulative trauma disorder (CT), occupational overuse syndrome, regional musculoskeletal disorder, and work related upper limb disorder (WRULD, ULD).

Repetitive Strain Injury Symptoms

  • Tenderness, swelling, and redness in the affected area.
  • Pain when you move the area that may cause you to wake throughout the night.
  • Numbness, stiffness, weakness or tingling in the affected muscles, tendons, joints and bones.
  • Discomfort brought on by a particular task that improves when it is stopped - i.e., when pain lessens or disappears over weekends or during holidays.

Repetitive Strain Injury Causes

  • Daily repetitive movements (usually longer than 2 hours per day) usually involved with working in a factory (sorting or assembling pieces), office (typing or clicking a mouse), or warehouse (lifting or twisting).
  • Poor posture while working at a desk or awkward positioning while performing tasks such as shoveling, sliding, lifting, and twisting frequently.
  • Kneeling during work everyday, like tiling or scrubbing floors, puts excess pressure on the knee tendons and bursa which can cause repetitive stress injuries.
  • Heavy loads and forceful exertion on bursae, muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments that cause trauma or fatigue.
  • Frequent vibrations that cause blood vessels to constrict and impair circulation.
  • Repeating the same movement during a sport or leisure activity such as gardening.

Examples of Repetitive Strain Injury

  • Housemaid's Knee (pre-patellar bursitis) - long periods of time kneeling to tile or scrub a floor
  • Biceps tendinitis (tendonitis) - repeated scrubbing motion
  • De Quervain's Disease - repeated twisting of the wrist or pinching motions
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) - forceful backward bending of the wrist when painting with a brush
  • Golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis) - forceful forward or twisting motion of the wrist when pulling on ropes

RSI Treatments - What You Can Do!

If a repetitive stress injury (RSI) is detected early, there is a greater chance that the condition can be reversed and symptoms can be eased.

Success

If you have been diagnosed with RSI, it is recommended that you rest the injured body part from any aggravating factors, especially the task(s) that caused the condition. Your physician may also recommend painkillers/anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy, cold compression therapy, ultrasound therapy, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) or even surgery in some cases.

We recommend that you consult your doctor and/or physiotherapist before using any of our outstanding products, to make sure they're right for you and your condition.
