The rise and rise of RSI

According to the Daily Mail half a million workers have RSI. From figures compiled by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, 448,000 workers were reported as having RSI last year. And the number of cases is rising.

More and more employers are aware of the cost of employee sickness due to the variety of conditions termed RSI, including tendonitis, tennis elbow, and frozen shoulder. Employers frequently spend a great deal on well designed work stations, thereby tackling half the problem. The Alexander technique can help you with the other half, showing you how to use that work station more effectively. Good use, with the head properly balanced and the spine lengthening, can greatly reduce the chances of RSI developing. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer symptoms already, recovery can be helped with the Alexander technique.
