Repetitive Use Injury (RUI) can occur as a result of prolonged sitting, causing significant pain and loss of work productivity. This can shorten a person’s career that would otherwise be fulfilling. It is necessary to focus on breathing, stretching, and strengthening key muscle groups to release tension and improve body flexibility, mental well-being, and spiritual health to prevent RUI.
