Repetitive Strain Injuries

(RSI) and associative trauma disorders are terms used to refer to several discrete conditions that can be associated with repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or sustained/awkward positions.

 Some of the conditions are edema, tendinosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, radial tunnel syndrome and focal dystonia.

All associative trauma disorders are due to processes in the body being forced beyond the body's capacity to endure this action. These conditions are the body's way of letting you know it wants you to STOP doing what you are doing or at least think about what you are doing....until it has had time to clear a mechanical response from the nerves and change the chemistry in the affected tissue.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become weak and are more likely to break, usually the hips, spine, and wrists. Known causes for predisposition to experiencing degeneration of bones are;

  • Gender. Women get osteoporosis more often than men.-Metaphysical cause;- not accepting giving to yourself, not nourishing your self but instead keep giving out to others all the time..meeting the needs of others to the point of depletion of yourself.

  • Body size. Small and thin women are at greater risk. From the acceptance of meeting the needs of others takes your inner strength, and having the feelings that others are alway taking from you. No feeling of equalness.
  • Ethnicity. White and Asian women are at highest risk.-disempowered by perception of giving out to others.
