Repetitive Strain Injury
Repetitive strain injury, or as it is known in short RSI is classed as an occupational overuse syndrome. It is an upper limb injury or isometric contraction myopathy and the cause of it is a repeated overuse of the hands wrists, arms and shoulders, which causes an injury to your muscles.
Many of us could be suffering from repetitive strain injury right now and not know it. This is because the symptoms of repetitive strain injury can take months or even years to appear. It starts with a slight ache that gradually gets worse until it becomes severe, which is when pain will be felt most of the time, even with the slightest movement. It is due to the fact that repetitive strain injury could take years to develop that when it comes to claiming compensation your three year limit of making a compensation claim will begin from the date you realise that your pain is caused through repetitive strain injury.
Anyone whose job involves repetitive motions is at risk of repetitive strain injury. This risk is increased by spending large amounts of time without a break and sitting uncomfortably at your workstation.
Repetitive strain injury causes damage to your muscles, tendons and nerves. It mainly affects occupations such as office workers or factory assembly workers; basically any occupation that involves repetitive motions.
