A painful condition affecting people who overuse muscles as a result of, for example, regularly operating a computer keyboard and mouse or playing the piano. It is usually caused by some combination of inflammation and myofascial trigger points in the painful areas.
An occupational disorder of the tendons, ligaments, and nerves caused by the cumulative effects of prolonged repetitious movements. Repetitive strain injuries are appearing with increasing frequency among office workers who spend long hours typing at computerized workstations that are not equipped with safeguards such as wrist supports. Acronym: RSI.
a progressive condition that begins with mild pain or weariness of the hands, wrists and arms
Repetitive strain injury, or RSI is a generic term that is used to describe many different overuse soft tissue injuries including carpel tunnel syndrome and overuse tendon problems. Repeated activities are implicated in its onset, although stress and poor posture also often play a part.
An injury that occurs when the same movement is repeated continuously.
This is an injury that is caused by doing the same activity for long periods of time without having enough rest. RSI is common amongst people who do a lot of keyboarding.
Injury, generally sustained to wrists elbows and shoulders, arising from repetitive activities, such as keyboard operation.
An injury to the upper extremities resulting from prolonged overuse, pressure, force, vibration, or awkward or constrained posture
Repetitive strain injury (RSI), also called repetitive stress injury, is a loose group of conditions from overuse of the computer, guitar, knife or similar motion or tool. It is an occupational overuse syndrome affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the arms and upper back; hence it is also known as work related upper limb disorder or WRULD. The medically accepted condition in which it occurs is when muscles in these areas are kept tense for very long periods of time, due to poor posture and/or repetitive motions.
