Work related or Repetitive strain injury

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) isalso called work-related upper limb disorder or non-specific upper limb pain, is a general term used to describe the pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse and often occurs in people who work with computers or carry out repetitive manual work.

A physiotherapist works with you to help identify the aggravating activity and see if it can be modified, which may be advice on posture or manual handling, as well as strengthening to help your muscles cope with the strain.

Often taping and manual treatment can help with this and relax muscles.
