What are repetitive stress injuries?
Repetitive Stress Injuries may happen when the same movement is repeated over and over again. This repeated motion puts too much stress on one part of the body and can cause muscle strains, inflammation, or even tissue damage. One common repetitive stress injury is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which occurs because of a pinching in the median nerve that runs from the arm to the wrist. While it may seem insignificant, it can seriously affect your work, especially if you rely on your hands (ex. Typists, musicians, etc.). Any worker at any job can be susceptible to a repetitive stress injury.
