Repetitive Strain Injury: What Is It?

Repetitive Strain Injury: What Is It?

Repetitive strain injury is most commonly an occupational health hazard. The term repetitive strain injury (RSI) is used to describe a range of painful conditions of the muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a condition where pain and other symptoms occur in an area of the body which has done repetitive tasks (often the arms or hands). It is usually related to an occupation and is one of the most common work injuries, but leisure activities can also be a cause. Unlike a normal strain following a sudden injury, symptoms of RSI can persist well beyond the time it would take symptoms of normal strain injuries to ease.

What Causes Repetitive Strain Injury?

  • Poor posture while performing repetitive movements

  • Excessive force while performing repetitive movements

  • Not having enough breaks 

    Symptoms in the affected area can include:

  • Pain

  • Tightness

  • Dull ache

  • Throbbing

  • Numbness

  • Tingling

  • Weakness

  • Cramping

  • Stiffness

The symptoms tend to develop gradually. At first the symptoms may only occur whilst you do the repetitive task, and ease off when you rest. In time the symptoms can be present all the time – but tend to be madeworse by doing the repetitive task. Symptoms can range from mild to severe.

What Can Recovery Physio Do To Help You With RSI?

Early intervention is very important with RSI, and it is best to address these problems within 2 months of the first sign of symptoms.

  • Muscle stretches

  • Strengthening exercises

  • Gentle joint manipulation to free the affected joints

  • Electrotherapy and/or acupuncture to help relieve the pain

It needs to be investigated. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part. Anyway you may try- sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

I am suffering from Slipped disc of L5S1 since last 10 years. Had gone under microdisctomy twice in this duration but the problem still persists. Unable to pursue my career as it is almost impossible for my to walk, sit, or do my day to day tasks on account of numbness, burning pain radiating towards the left leg of my body from buttocks to thighs and downwards. Since I already had two disctomies I am not willing to take a chance for the third one. Is there any alternate way I can get rid of this condition and focus on my career. I am 36 years of age and my built is normal. I am a vegetarian and my job involved a lot of sitting activity. Please advise.

Hi lybrate-user, I understand after twice disc surgery one will not think to undergo surgery I would suggest avoid sitting for prolong period take a break after every 20 mins sitting posture and you can have physiotherapy for back strengthing and pain relief, at this age slip disc most common cause of back pain if it's slipped disc give time disc may get extruded or sequestered and may resorb over a period of time.
