What is RSI of the back?

Although RSI often affects the arms and hands, any part of the body subjected to repetitive actions can be at risk. Tension in the shoulders and stiffness in the neck can lead to upper back pain and cause the sufferer a lot of pain and discomfort. The lower back can also be affected.

The biggest cause of back pain at work is poor posture. There are several elements which need to be considered to ensure an appropriate posture at work which include checking the seat height, desk and screen height in your working environment.

Firstly, your chair should support your back and if possible, have an adjustable handle to allow you to alter the height you are sitting at. Legally, your employer must carry out a work station assessment so that any issues can be identified. If your chair is not positioned at the correct height, it could lead you to strain the neck, ultimately leading to a lot of pain in the upper back. If your chair does not adequately support your back your lower back could be subjected to a lot of pain too.

Another very important element to consider which often brings on symptoms of RSI of the back is the height of the computer screen at your work station. If the screen is not positioned straight ahead of you, in a place where you do not need to strain to look at it, you may be a risk of developing RSI in the shoulders, neck and back because you continuously need to strain your muscles to see the screen.
