Repetitive strain injuries can restrict your movement and comfort, but personalized treatment can help restore flexibility and ease pain

Understanding Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) are musculoskeletal disorders caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or sustained or awkward positions. Common in workplaces, RSIs affect various parts of the body, particularly the upper limbs. Early recognition and intervention are crucial to prevent long-term damage.
