Repetitive Strain Injury
Typical symptoms in patients who might receive a diagnosis of RSI are:
- short bursts of pain in the neck, back, shoulders, arm, wrists, hands, or thumbs (sometimes with associated tingling and numbness)
- the pain worsening on continued activity
- weakness in these problem areas
A common complaint is due to the nature of computer based work environments.
Simple ergonomic measures and a new look at your posture can help you reduce the impacting strain whilst treatment rebalances the tissue and joint disturbances to improve symptoms and restore you.
