One out of every 10 Canadian adults had a repetitive strain injury (RSI) serious enough to limit their normal activities in 2000/01, according to a new study published today in Health reports, which shows that RSIs are affecting a growing number of adults.
An estimated 2.3 million people aged 20 or older reported having had an RSI at some point in the 12 months prior to their participation in the Canadian Community Health Survey, for which data collection began in September 2000.
Longer-term associations of RSIs with chronic pain and psychological distress are based on data for 9,255 longitudinal respondents aged 20 and older in 1998/99, 737 of whom reported having had an RSI in the previous year.
