Causes of Repetitive Strain Injury
RSI is caused by repetitive physical movements which can cause damage to nerves, tendons, soft tissue and muscles. Rapid movement or repetition over a long period of time can also cause muscle fatigue and build up metabolic waste. The damage can lead to serious pain and even permanent disability.
RSI can go on to cause the following conditions:
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Thoracic outlet syndrome
• DeQuervain’s syndrome
• Myofascial pain syndrome
• Trigger finger/thumb
• Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
Symptoms of RSI include stiff, sore and burning hands, fingers, forearms and elbows. The hands can often feel like they are cold, tingling or numb, with no strength or coordination and can often be very painful.
