    Treatment for RSI: Chiropractic and Osteopathy

    In the 2012/13 period alone, the Health and Safety Executive state that over 78,000 injuries to employees were reported under RIDDOR. Regardless of industry, accidents at work are rife, and RSI is one of the most common causes for work-related injury and absence.

    Where is an RSI likely to strike?

    No industry is completely RSI risk-free. Whether your work involves manual handling, labouring or sitting at an office desk, there is always the underlying threat of RSI, unless a particularly effective workplace assessment has been undertaken and implemented.

    RSI strikes when repetitive actions cause injury to the upper body including the chest, back, neck and arms.

    Chiropractic and osteopathy treatments

    Chiropractic treatment is primarily concerned with treatment of injuries to the spine. Chiropractic and osteopathy are similar and often work together, however, the predominant difference is that the former is concerned with the nervous system, while the latter is involved with blood circulation.

    The main aim of both chiropractic and osteopathy services are to diagnose the injury and help eliminate the pain of the work-related RSI.

    What will I need to provide

    As well as a true and objective statement, it is important that you are also able to back up your claim with evidence.

    Take photographs of the issue that has caused your RSI and keep records of hospital visits, doctors appointments, treatment, prescriptions and any other medical attention you have received – this, of course, includes chiropractic and osteopath services.

    Should a colleague be willing to act as a witness, then keep a note of their details including full name, contact address and telephone number.

    Although you may be required to attend an additional medical to confirm the intricacies of your RSI, claimants often do not need to attend court and most cases can be handled over the phone.
