Repetitive Strain Injuries and Disorders
How Does Repetitive Strain Disorder Rehabilitation Help?
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) refers to pain associated with repetitive movement and overuse of nerves and muscles. It can be felt in almost all body parts. Repetitive Strain Injury is also commonly referred to as repetitive motion injury. It is usually a result of gradual buildup of damage to muscles, tendons, and nerves from such repetitive motions.
Symptoms include pain, throbbing, stiffness, numbness and weakness in the affected area.
There are a wide range of possible causes of Repetitive Strain Injuries, some of which include:
- Poor posture when sitting or standing at work
- Overuse of muscles at the workplace or in sports
- Repetitive activities or movements
- Cold temperatures
- Stress and fatigue
