About repetitive strain injury (RSI)
Common RSI conditions include: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), Occupational Overuse Syndrome, Work Related Upper Limb Injury Syndrome (WRULS) or Cumulative Trauma Disorder (CTD).
Repetitive strain injury, or RSI, refers to painful injuries caused by repetitive use of part of the body, awkward movements within the upper body or it can also be caused by holding an uncomfortable position for a long time. These repetitive movements and/or positions cause injury to muscles, tendons and other soft tissue.
