Repetitive strain injury

Redirected from Repetitive stress injury

Repetitive strain injury, sometimes also called repetitive stress injury or typing injury, is a tendon and nerve disorder that occurs when a person makes too many of the same motions over a long period of time. It is most common among workers on assembly lines and with those who do a large amount of typing or using the computer mouse extensively. In either case, the chances of developing the disorder are lessened by good posture and ergonomic working conditions.

Repetitive strain injury is not a specific disease but a loose group of other, more specific conditions. Some of these are tendonitis, Carpal tunnel syndrome, DeQuervain's syndrome[?], Thoracic outlet syndrome[?], Trigger finger/thumb[?].
