Can Bowen Therapy help R.S.I?
Repetitive Strain Injury (R.S.I.) can be caused by excessive repetitive movements and overuse that strain the muscles, nerves, and tendons of any joint.
The most commonly known form is the wrist joint. This can be caused by excessive typing, writing, drawing, painting, etc.
Although initially, it may only be mildly uncomfortable it can gradually become painful and if untreated can become severe and can start reflecting and referring pain into the forearm and elbow joint.
Without treatment, this condition can become a long-lasting issue with possible inflammation, weakness in the joint, and constant severe pain. There are times when it will not be possible to continue to work due to the adverse effects on your body.
Cases of R.S.I. have usually been prescribed painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs to manage the pain. Depending on the severity you may need a splint or support of some kind.
Although the painkillers and the anti-inflammatory drug may provide some relief they do not fix the actual issues in the joint; they merely temporarily mute your body’s cry for help
Bowen therapy works directly with your brain through the nervous system to relax and relieve strain in the muscles and nerves in your joints and strengthen from the inside. As it is working with and on the nerve cells in your fascia, it is extremely gentle thereby preventing a defensive reaction from the brain.
Bowen therapy can help you not only manage the pain but to relieve it so you do not have to take time off work or rethink your profession.
I have treated patients with mild to severe R.S.I. and they are all now managing without any drugs.
