A Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is basically an overstraining of an injury. Also described by Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOC), an RSI is the aggravation of an injury. Repetitive strain on and movement of an injured area causes inflammation as well as damage to the soft tissues in the injured area.
Localised injuries such as carpal tunnel, trigger finger, golfer’s and tennis elbow are included in RSI. If left unattended, a minor RSI may turn into a nasty chronic injury, thus calling for immediate attention to the condition at an early stage, in order to prevent the occurrence of aggravated problems in the future.
