How to Prevent Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS)

OOS (Occupational Overuse Syndrome) is often known as RSI (Repetition Strain Injury) and falls under the umbrella term Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WRMSDs). It has been found that it is not necessarily the repetition or rapid movements that cause the condition. It is a prolonged and sustained muscle contraction that causes the problems.
So, the medical and health profession then began to use the term Occupational Overuse Syndrome. However as the condition is not necessarily work related the condition is referred to as OVERUSE INJURY.
