RSI as a term names the cause of the injury, not its specific nature.
What is most effective as a treament will vary according to the nature
of the injury, but in general "so don't do that then" is one obvious 

I had RSI nigh on 20 years ago.  The first doctor I went to diagnosed
one thing and told me to rest, which didn't help.  The next doctor
diagnosed something different, and gave me exercises to do, which 
completely cured the problem.  No problems since. 

But part of the cure is the experience of having had the problem.  
I notice if I'm overdoing it and take appropriate action before it
is too late. I wouldn't want to do that to myself again.
