Repetitive Strain Injuries

Also called cumulative trauma disorders (CTD), repetitive trauma, repetitive injury, RSIs refer to a range of disabling injuries of the soft tissues, usually of the hands, wrists, forearms, shoulders, back and legs. The different terms indicate that such injuries involve repetition, and that they can also be caused by force, rapid movement, excessive strain, uncomfortable positioning of limbs or being in a constrained position over long periods.
