RSI – repetitive strain injury
An umbrella term encompassing a huge range of soft tissue conditions, from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to tendonitis and writer’s cramp. Generally, it is limbs of the upper body, such as the hands, wrists, forearms or elbow, that are affected by the condition. All variants of RSI are triggered by heavily repetitive movements either in sport or, increasingly, in the workplace, with poor posture and suboptimal work station dimensions also playing a part. Treatment takes a holistic approach, and your habitual posture as well as your working and leisure settings may need anything from minor adjustments to a complete overhaul, yet the results possible from even simple moderations to improve this condition can be astounding; you’ll wonder how you ever sat in discomfort before. Make the 9-5 feel natural, today.
