Understanding Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is a condition caused by repetitive motions, overuse, or prolonged poor posture, leading to pain, discomfort, and functional limitations. It commonly affects individuals who perform repetitive tasks, such as typing, using a computer, playing musical instruments, or engaging in repetitive sports activities. RSI can manifest as various conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and tendinitis.
