Repetitive Strain Injury

Repetitive strain injury occurs when muscles, nerves or tendons become inflamed or irritated. Repetitive strain injury is often reflected in people who have developed arthritis as a result of sports/workplace injury or carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive strain injury is caused by performing repetitive motions, using excessive force or using extreme movements.

Repetitive strain injury is also called R.S.I.

Causes of Repetitive Strain Injury:

  • Repetitive tasks - small, rapid movements that are repeated over and over.
  • Awkward sitting or standing positions - working in an awkward position or not moving regularly.
  • Heavy moving - using force or moving heavy loads.
  • Lack of rest time - no time to take a break during work or activity.

Symptoms of Repetitive Strain Injury:

  • Stiff or tight muscles in hands, wrists, fingers, forearms, elbows or shoulders.
  • Tingling and/or coldness in hands.
  • Loss of coordination in hands.
  • Pain.
  • Loss of strength.
  • Swelling.

Solutions to Repetitive Strain Injury:

  • Make sure your work station feels comfortable.
  • Take regular breaks before pain or discomfort develops.
  • Take time to gently stretch and exercise during those breaks.
  • Slide or roll objects on the effected area, if possible.
