This means that it describes damage to muscles, nerves, tendons, tendon sheaths or other soft tissues resulting from overuse or misuse. Repetitive Strain Injury most commonly effects and occurs in the upper limbs, and can lead to other problems too, for example tendonitis.
Repetitive strain injury can cause extreme discomfort and suffering. Unfortunately it is now extremely common in the UK. In the year 2006 alone there was just under half a million sufferers of Repetitive strain Injury in the UK.
The most frequent cause of Repetitive strain Injury is incorrect conditions in the workplace, for example sitting at desks with inadequate seating and support for long periods of time using computers. Other causes of Repetitive strain injury include:

- Working at low temperatures (e.g. outside during the winter)
- Working with vibrating equipment
