RSI Risk Factors & Repetition

Factors such as slouching, localized pressure (leaning on desks, arm rests), movement and using force can lead to injury if they are done repeatedly for an extended period of time.

It is this repetition that, over time, causes a reaction in the connective tissue system as it responds to these factors.

Connective tissue surrounds all of our nerves, blood vessels and muscles and it responds to stress and strain by contracting and becoming more dense.

This contraction causes symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, stiffness and soreness.

Aspects Other Than Repetition

Injury risk factors not directly related to repetitive action include: previous injury, previous surgery, emotional stress, trauma and aging.

The body responds to these factors at the connective tissue level as well.

The only way to permanently eliminate these symptoms is to consistently take corrective action in the connective tissue.
