Texting: is it becoming a pain in the neck?

By Clive D. Lathey D.O MSc (Sports Medicine), Registered Osteopath and Director of The Putney Clinic


We are starting to see young patients at the Putney Clinic in the 18-36 year age group with repetitive strain injuries (RSI) from excessive use of computers, iPads, smart phones and PlayStations. Common conditions that we regularly treat are: inflammatory tendon injuries of thumbs and fingers; tennis and golfers elbow from excessive use of the forearm muscles, and low back and neck pain from prolonged sitting in poor postural positions.


The increasing use of computers and smart phones, particularly in the younger population, will inevitably lead to a rise in the frequency of low back and neck pain and repetitive strain injuries.

Osteopathy at triyoga soho

On a recent visit to the triyoga centre in Soho, I visited the on-site osteopath Rob Hill. I have used osteopathy, alongside my yoga practice, for many years and find they work really well together keeping the body healthy, flexible and strong.
Rob gave a thorough examination and took a case history, before giving me any physical treatment. I - like many who practice or teach yoga - had a sacroiliac joint (lower back) strain, which caused some discomfort in other areas. Rob was able to diagnosis and give the appropriate treatment for this condition, which I found really helped my back pain.
It was very interesting for me to have treatment from an osteopath who also practices yoga (I am married to one who doesn’t do yoga). I think this enables the practitioner to have an extra understanding of how and why yogis do what they do; as well as having an insight into the common injuries faced by yoga students.
