Think you might have RSI?

It's time to talk to your doctor if you have any of these symptoms in your hands, arms, neck or shoulders and they come on during or after work:
  • tingling,
  • weakness in the arms or shoulders,
  • clumsiness,
  • painful sore arms, neck or shoulders,
  • difficulty doing everyday tasks,
  • cold hands.
Take action now — if RSI is ignored it can lead to a chronic pain condition! This website has lots of information and tools that can help you understand and respond to RSI.
