Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) due to smartphone use
The number of questions our free medical Q & A website AskTheDoctor.com gets related to Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is growing largely over the last few years, especially with more people getting smartphones and texting more. The number of patients we physically see at our family practice due to RSI has also become a very large number as well. Remember to practice stretching exercises on your wrist and thumbs at least a couple times per week in order to prevent RSI. Try and avoid over texting if you can.
