Treatment for RSI: Feldenkrais

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) are one of the biggest problems in terms of injuries at work facing employers in the modern workplace.

They are complicated and problematic in a number of ways, including the undoubted fact that the treatment and recovery from an RSI at work can be a long and arduous process.

Accidents at work come in all shapes and sizes, but few take as long to finally rear their head than an RSI. The problem then is that at some point the worker is going to have to go back to performing the very tasks that caused the problems in the first place.

For example, an office employee simply cannot stop typing or using their computer. Instead, treatment must be sought and, fortunately, there are a number of ways work-related RSIs can be treated, one of the most popular of which is Feldenkrais.

So, what exactly is Feldnekrais? Well, as opposed to other treatment techniques, such as massage, which rely on physical interaction, Feldenkrais is all about making yourself more aware of your own being.

Essentially, this means heightening your awareness of just about everything, from your movement and breathing, to your own posture; all of which can help avoid discomfort and injuries at work.

The benefits of practising Feldenkrais include:

–  Relief from feelings of pain and tension in the muscles.

–  Being able to take easier and fuller breaths.

–  A higher level of relaxation and general well-being.

–  Increased vitality.

In terms of avoiding accidents and injuries at work, especially work-related RSI’s, Feldenkrais can be invaluable.

As well as the obvious benefits of soothing and relaxing aching muscles and tendons which have grown sore from over-use, an alert and active mind can also help keep you safe at work.

Tired minds often make the wrong decision, whilst you may also be tempted to take a shortcut or seek a quick fix in order to get the task done on time.

Rushing about without taking due care and attention can very easily lead to accidents and injuries at work.

Feldenkrais can also help improve your posture which will help keep you comfortable and free from injury at work.
