Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
Repetitive strain injury is caused by the overuse of muscles mainly in the upper body, especially the hands, wrists, knuckles, arms, shoulders, back or neck caused basically by repeated actions such as excessive use of a mouse, keyboard or most commonly excessive use of texting on mobile phones. As a computer user that works many hours using a mouse and keyboard I can vouch that repetitive strain injury can be very painful indeed. Apart from the obvious and the actions highlighted above RSI is also common in users of the guitar, knife or similar repetitive actions. It is an occupational overuse syndrome affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the arms, hands and upper back; hence it is also known as work related upper limb disorder.
