Accidents at work vary from minor slips and trips, to the more severe industrial-related injuries. Although many work-related injuries are industry specific, with risks and hazards fluctuating greatly from job to job, repetitive strain injury (RSI) is one of the accidents at work prevalent in most sectors.
How can the Bowen Technique aid my RSI?
The Bowen Technique is an alternative form of treatment for those who suffer from the painful effects of an RSI.
Unlike typical massage and physiotherapy methods, treatment of RSI using the Bowen Technique involves very gentle, rolling touches to the skin, often through light clothing.
It is believed that the Bowen Technique aids RSI by acting as a complementary treatment that can be particularly beneficial when provided in conjunction with other medical options.
Can I claim for my RSI?
If you have suffered pain, been forced to take leave from work and/or received treatment due to an RSI you sustained in the workplace, it can leave you feeling stressed and frustrated.
When the work-related incident in question was in no way your fault, you may want to consider claiming personal injury compensation for the harm and pain you have suffered.
To be eligible to claim, as a basis, the accident at work must have occurred within the last three years, and you must be able to prove that you are in no way to blame for your RSI.
Evidence such as witness accounts, photographs of working conditions and injuries, and medical records can all strengthen you claim and aid the legal process significantly.
