Repetitive Stress Injuries
What is RSI?
Repetitive Stress Injuries generally occur in those over the age of 30. The incidence of this type of injury is becoming more widespread as many jobs now require people to make repetitive actions such as typing, or clicking a computer mouse. It can also occur frequently in sports; some examples include Achilles Tendinitis in basketball or Tennis Elbow in tennis.
How do they occur?
These injuries often result when stress is placed on a joint due to the same action being performed over and over. The two most common types of repetitive stress injuries are Tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon) and Bursitis (inflammation of a structure called the bursa which is a sac-like structure within a joint).
