Every day, thousands of workers suffer from crippling pains caused by a repetitive strain injury, or an RSI.The most common types of RSIs include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis (tennis elbow), and De Quervain's disease, which is a painful inflammation in the thumb that extends to the wrist.
Typically caused by the overuse of muscles and tendons in the upper back, Repetitive Strain Injuries commonly affect the hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, shoulders, necks and back area.
In addition to causing a great deal of pain to those who suffer from an RSI, these musculoskeletal disorders also have a big impact on our employers and the U.S. economy.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), repetitive strain injuries are the nation's most common and costly occupational health problem, affecting hundreds of thousands of American workers, and costing more than $20 billion a year in workers compensation.
