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 well-known form is the wrist joint, which can be caused by excessive typing, writing, drawing, painting, etc.

While it may only be mildly uncomfortable to start, it can gradually become painful. If untreated, it can become severe and can start reflecting and referring pain into the forearm and the 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.

I have treated patients with mild to severe R.S.I. and they are all now managing without any drugs.

“Bowen Therapy has been able to treat both the physical pain and the emotional stress, an essential attribute for me, that other forms of treatment would not have been able to do. Thank you Seema!

Lower back and hip pain

“I started seeing Seema for Bowen Therapy towards the end of last year as I was experiencing persistent problems with pain in my lower back and hips. I was at the point where sitting for even a few minutes would cause me pain spasms for the rest of the day.

In my first session Seema took a lot of care to get a full background of my day to day activities, not only with motion and things that would trigger the pain, but also understanding my diet, sleep, medication needs and other lifestyle factors.

Right from the first session Seema was able to give me some fantastic ideas of things I could work on to improve all of these areas and those improvements have gone on to make a massive difference. Seema’s knowledge around these subjects is really impressive and she continues to research the topics frequently so is always up to date.

The Bowen therapy itself was very unique compared to therapies I’ve had in the past. It was very gentle but I could feel it having a significant effect. The most noticeable was when Seema worked on my jaw to get it realigned and stop it clicking. The treatment worked very well.

As a result of my sessions with Seema I now have a lot greater range of movement in my joints, everything is aligned properly and I get a lot less pain. Any pain that does crop up from time to time goes away quickly by moving and I don’t need painkillers for my back any more!

Thank you so much for your continued care and support Seema, I have no hesitation in recommending you to others who experience pain on a daily basis.”
