Most people get over RSI

There is an increased chance for individuals to get over their RSI Type conditions if they consider a combination of factors ranging from getting appropriate treatment to improving their general lifestyle. However, it is essential to bear in mind that each individual reacts differently to treatment and therefore the recovery rate can vary. In addition, there are no set cures for RSI type conditions and because everyone's physiology is unique, treatment and recovery rates will again vary.

Treatment alone may initially relieve the pain, but individuals then need to make changes to working habits and general lifestyle.

Working habits include;

  • pacing the work,
  • taking regular rest breaks and
  • working at an ergonomically designed workstation.

General lifestyle may include;

  • being positive,
  • relaxing,
  • taking regular exercise,
  • following a healthy diet
