Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a common term used to describe the condition due to overuse or repetitive motion of a particular area of the body causing pain and inflammation in muscles and tendons. Work-related upper limb disorder is another name given to this common work-related condition.
Repetitive strain injuries commonly happen in wrist, elbow, and shoulder due to physical stress and as a result of repetitive movement of the same joint and muscles. People who work with computers or the ones who work in assembly lines are prone to Repetitive Strain Injuries. Repetitive strains can occur in recreational athletes as well and they usually vary in severity and type.
Here are some common symptoms of RSI:
Physiotherapy plays a major role in the treatment of repetitive strains. The exercises recommended by a physiotherapist will improve the flexibility and strength of the muscle and tendons. In addition to this, massage and cold laser therapy can also help relieve the pain and restore the mobility of the affected tissues, bones and muscles.
