If you work in an office and you spend a lot of time typing on a computer, you should know about Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).

RSI is a catch-all phrase that covers many symptoms, including tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, etc. Basically, if your hands or wrists hurt, lose feeling, tingle, burn, ache, or feel stiff, that’s probably RSI.

RSI is potentially disabling. It can make typing, writing, eating, and even holding hands painful. It can last for many years. Yet you can get RSI in just one week, or even less.

  • The most common way to get RSI is too much typing in bad ergonomics – meaning in an office workstation environment that is not user friendly.
  • Writing or other repetitive activities can also cause RSI. For some people, RSI comes on suddenly. For others, it comes on gradually.
  • The most common signs of RSI are pain, numbness, or tingling. If you feel these signs, go see a doctor. If these symptoms come occasionally and go away quickly when you stop typing, try taking more breaks and improving your work station setup. You can get a free work station evaluation from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has estimated that RSI costs more than $20 billion a year in workers’ compensation payments nationwide. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, data entry workers missed an average of five days of work and secretaries missed an average of 4.5 days of work from RSI in 2002.

If your symptoms of RSI are more serious or persist, go back to your doctor.
