Repetitive Strain InjuryRSI is a general term used to describe pain of muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse. It most frequently occurs in those who work with computers or in repetitive manual labour. This condition mostly affects parts of the upper body including the neck, shoulder, elbow, wrists and forearm. Physiotherapy aims to restore normal movement to injured tissues. Each treatment is tailored to the individual patient and may include joint mobilisation, exercise therapy, electrotherapy and specialised techniques to help mobilise nerve tissue affected by RSI. The physiotherapist can also help to develop a programme to improve postural awareness, incorporate changes to work practices such as more regular breaks and provide ergonomic information.
