Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a generic term used to describe the pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse. It’s also known as work-related upper limb disorder, or non-specific upper limb pain.
The condition mostly affects parts of the upper body, such as the forearms and elbow, wrists and hands, and neck and shoulders Symptoms can range from mild to severe and usually develop gradually. They often include pain, aching or tenderness, stiffness, throbbing, or tingling or numbness.
Holistic therapist Sarah Jayne Baker, who provides a range of in-chair workplace therapies for major UK companies, comes across a wide range of RSI sufferers and recommends Copper88 to many of her clients.
“One person working at a well known pharmaceutical company as a researcher was suffering discomfort in both hands”.
“Her job involved performing an intricate process with arms slightly raised and fingers outstretched, using test tubes and pipettes , working at arms length through protective shielding known as smoke hoods. She had been suffering from intense discomfort but soldiered on because it was her job”.
“The company had provided a wrist support pad but the problem persisted. I suggested that she tried copper 88 fingerless compression gloves, The fact that they are fingerless meant that she wouldn’t lose dexterity at work, whilst the compression and copper got to work on the inflammation causing the RSI” .
“The results were incredible – by my next visit a month later, the pain had all but disappeared and it was like talking to a different person! And after seeing the results of wearing Copper88 a co worker whose RSI manifested itself in wrist pain started using a Copper88 wrist sleeve and achieved similar results”
“I am an advocate of the use of copper as a powerful supplement to health and wellbeing and this was yet more evidence of the good that it can do, especially when combined with compression”
