repetitive movement can cause an injury, even text messaging. Probably the most
common of the many possible causes of lower back pain is overuse of the muscles,
tendons or joints. Overuse can cause repetitive strain injuries (RSI) in
ligaments, muscles, facet joints and sacroiliac joints. Due to strenuous activities,
some muscles are exercised more than they are used. In most cases, due to poor
posture, small muscles are pushed or strained by erratic movements. The key is
to have strong core muscle to maintain a good body posture.

are often neglected. Most people have weak core muscle, which are the cause of
many injuries, poor posture and back and neck pain.

multiple joints, multiple planes of movement, thus decreasing the risk of back
injuries and increasing the holistic benefit of motor coordination, good posture,
balance and flexibility.
strain injuries (RSI) are a family of injuries affecting tendons, tendon sheaths,
muscles, nerves and joints. These trauma disorder are the result from prolonged
repetitive, forceful, or awkward hand movements. RSI cause persistent or recurring
pains most commonly in the lower back, neck, shoulders, forearms, hands, wrists,

repetitive motions at the computer or in sports. The main causes can be classified
in the following ways:
Static loading injuries, caused by fixed positioning with unsupported limbs.
movement injuries, caused by repeated rapid movements
movement injuries, cause by exertion of muscle movement
Care of Yourself
is the best medicine when it comes to RSI. The key is avoid overusing muscles
and joints without resting. Here are some guideline that we use in the practice
sensible about the amount of time you spend doing any repeated motions. Take breaks

to prevent RSI. As explained in the Mastermoves manual and videos, always warm

Nutrition helps preventing RSI. Proper nutrition is essential for developing and
maintaining strong and flexible muscles and ligaments,
hydration also helps preventing RSI. Muscle tissue is comprised of over 70% water,
and it serves an important role in all cellular activity, so we would say it's
