Neuromuscular Solutions for Computer-Induced Shoulder Pain

In the digital age, our lifestyles are increasingly tethered to devices, particularly computers, which while expanding our horizons, often confine our physical movements. At JANMI, nestled in the bustling heart of Central London, we provide a sanctuary where neuromuscular therapy (NMT) brings relief and recovery to those suffering from shoulder injuries commonly associated with extensive computer use.

Unveiling the Culprits: Common Shoulder Injuries

Prolonged periods of typing and mouse use can lead to a trio of prevalent shoulder issues: Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, Bursitis, and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Each of these conditions stems from the repetitive strain and poor posture endemic to modern computer use.

1. Rotator Cuff Tendinitis manifests as pain and swelling in the shoulder due to inflamed tendons. It typically arises from repetitive arm lifting, which occurs when navigating a computer mouse or persistently typing at an improper height.

2. Bursitis involves inflammation of the bursae, the small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. Extended hours at a keyboard can cause the shoulder to remain in an unnatural position for too long, leading to this painful condition.

3. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is somewhat more complex, caused by compression of the blood vessels or nerves between the collarbone and the first rib, leading to numbness, tingling, and pain in the shoulders and arms, significantly affecting those who maintain poor posture during long workdays.

How Neuromuscular Therapy Provides Relief

Neuromuscular therapy at JANMI offers more than mere symptom relief; it addresses the root causes of these conditions with precision. By carefully assessing your posture, muscle imbalances, and movement patterns, our therapists pinpoint the specific areas contributing to your pain. Treatment often involves a combination of techniques including manual pressure, stretching, and guided exercises that target the affected musculature and connective tissues.

For Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, NMT focuses on alleviating tension in the rotator cuff muscles, enhancing blood flow and promoting healing of the tendons. Bursitis sufferers benefit from techniques that reduce inflammation and fluid build-up, while Thoracic Outlet Syndrome treatment aims to release the compressed areas, restoring proper nerve function and circulation.

The JANMI Difference

What sets JANMI apart is our commitment to a holistic approach. Each session is tailored not just to treat the injury but also to educate on maintaining shoulder health through ergonomic adjustments and preventive exercises. Our goal is not only to heal but also to empower clients with knowledge to prevent future injuries.
