Repetitive Stress Disorders

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) Treatments

When you perform the same motion over and over again – whether on the job or in a sport – you run the risk of incurring “cumulative” trauma.

Painful conditions such as tendonitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, and bursitis can result from these repetitive motions.

There are two types of repetitive stress disorders, also known as repetitive strain injury (RSI), that can impact your muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons, creating symptoms such as tenderness, stiffness, tingling, or loss of sensation in the affected area.

Type 1 RSI is a musculoskeletal disorder with symptoms that include swelling and inflammation of specific muscles and tendons, while type 2 RSI is related to nerve damage caused by work activities.

Repetitive stress disorders can be caused by a wide variety of activities and equipment including:

  • The overuse of a particular muscle or group of muscles
  • Equipment that vibrates (e.g., jackhammers, sanders, power tools)
  • Performing at a non-ergonomically designed workstation
  • Carrying heavy loads
  • Performing forceful activities
  • Maintaining the same posture for prolonged periods of time
  • Working in cold temperatures
