Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries, or RSI, are a particular type of chronic injury that can affect people in a wide range of fields and lifestyles. They occur because of repetitive tasks, vibrations, or exertions that can cause damage to the nervous system and musculoskeletal systems. Worryingly, these injuries often appear psychosomatic, affecting areas that may not seem directly associated with the injury. Doctors describe an RSI as pain that has no apparent source.

The Symptoms

There are several classic symptoms to RSI. The three most frequently cited are:

  • Chronic pain in an area of the body, most frequently the arm, hand, wrist, shoulder, or back: The pain is often deferred and spread over several regions, often along nerve endings. This means that the damage could be in one area but the pain could come from another.
  • Activity increases the feeling of pain.
  • Problems with endurance or stamina in the affected area

If you experience any of these symptoms, it may be a good idea to seek medical attention for your injury, in order to prevent the injury from getting worse.
