More effects of stress - Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)

Repetitive Stress Injuries, caused by repeated physical movements, results in damage to tendons, nerves, muscles, and other soft body tissue.   The increased use of computers in the workplace has resulted in an epidemic of injuries to hands, arms, and shoulders: Tendinitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or Cumulative Trauma Disorder.  Current prevention techniques are called Ergonomics.   Employers have invested much money in adjustable chairs, wrist rests for typists, and methods to shift and vary tasks among employees.  On-site chair massage programs are a wonderful, relatively inexpensive addition to programs offices may already have in place.
