Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) occur when a tissue becomes over worked and does not get the chance to heal or recover from the previous load.  This cycle continues until the tissue can eventually fail when weakness and pain is felt.

Common RSIs include Achilles Tendinopathy and Patellar Tendinopathy which can occur with repetitive walking, running or jumping, and also Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow which can occur due to overuse of arms.   These can make every day tasks difficult, such as waling, climbing the stairs, typing or (as you seen above) opening jars or bottles.
