Raising Awareness of RSI

Almost half a million people in the UK suffer from some form of Musculoskeletal Disorder, commonly known as RSI. Typified by aching joints, painful muscles and back pain, repetitive strain injury (RSI) sufferers could find themselves falling pray to any of 20 different types of muscoskeletal problems.

Posture Dynamics, a London-based Osteopathy service with osteopathy clinics in Victoria, Kensington and Ealing offers a specialist corporate osteopathy service to tackle the problem said to cost British companies 180 million lost workdays per year. Daren Fletcher, Osteopath and founder of Posture Dynamics said, “The problem with RSI in its many forms is that it is typically caused by overuse of the muscles in the hands, wrists, arms andshoulders on an almost daily basis.

“Carrying out the same actions each day damages the muscles, joints and ligaments but they are given little time to recover as workplaces become more and more dependent on activities known to cause these problems such as typing and repeated clicking on a computer mouse.”

The risk of RSI is greatly increased by factors such as poor seating, working at a poorly arranged workstation or working long hours without taking regular breaks. RSI then manifests itself as aches and pains followed by discomfort when performing the problematic activities, numbness and tingling and even a problem holding objects due to the muscle inflammation.

With osteopathy centres around the capital and an in-office service, Posture Dynamics’ osteopathic care for RSI sufferers begins at the source of the pain, analysing cause and symptoms to devise individual treatment plans and reduce the discomfort of RSI.

Offering remedial advice and educating employees on simple preventative exercises to be performed in the office, Posture Dynamics’ osteopaths can perform workplace studies, analysing risk factors and activities which may cause some form of Musculoskeletal Disorder, in order to reduce employee risk.

“Even simple measures such as introducing wrist supports for typists or stretching and beginner Pilates techniques will make a notable difference,” adds Daren Fletcher.
