There are many different types of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and these are categorised by the overuse of certain movements and motions.

Commonly RSI occurs as a result of an individual undertaking a task typical to them. Be it associated with their occupation, hobby or sport, a repetitive motion can lead to a strain on a particular body part.

People prone to this are typically employees working within a labour intensive or repetitive environment, for example secretaries, electricians, painters or workers on a production / assembly line.

Sufferers can also be players of field, track, racquet or handball sports.

Those who are involved in occupations, interest and hobbies such as these are generally more vulnerable to developing the symptoms linked with repetitive strain injury.

Some of the most common RSI types are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, De Quervains' Syndrome, Tendonitis, Tenosynovitis and Back Pain such as Spinal Stenosis.

This guide explains the injuries which are most often categorised beneath this heading and how these can be avoided. As ever we provide a jargon explained guide to the most common sports injuries in RSI together with a straightforward guide to products that can help if you suffer one of these injuries yourself.
