RSI stands for repetitive strain injuries and is often used to describe painful disorders affecting tendons, muscles, nerves, joints, back, chest, shoulders, arms and hands. RSI awareness day is generally recognized on February 29th as the only “non-repetitive” day of the year and is recognized on February 28th this year.
