Inter Law – Seek help for work-related injuries

Seek help for work-related injuries, says physio expert – 20/03/2017An expert in the physiotherapy industry has advised employees who develop repetitive strain injury (RSI) to seek help from a qualified practitioner.

Bronwyn Clifford is a chartered occupational therapist and director of Physio at Work. She said not only should staff with RSI tell their manager, but should definitely obtain treatment.

There are physiotherapists that specialise in work-related injuries, she added, while also suggesting that finding one with experience of RSI treatment is also advisable because they may be able to help with an ergonomic workstation assessment.

This involves making sure your desk setup is not exacerbating or contributing to the injury.

“You could be gripping the mouse a little bit too tight, or making forceful movements on the keyboard. It could be that your chair may not be at the right height,” Ms Clifford warned.

“You might be resting your wrists on the desk which will put pressure on your carpel tunnel area.”

According to RSI Awareness, the condition costs industry up to £20 billion annually in lost production – something that may be pertinent to the personal injury claims sector.
