Repetitive Motion Injuries
Repetitive Motion injuries are caused from an accumulation of repetitive microtrauma to the tissues. Repetitive Motion injuries are also referred to as Cumulative Trauma Disorders or overuse injuries. Repetitive motion injuries are common in both the industrial and athletic populations. They are often seen in activities requiring prolonged, repetitive movements, vibrations, forceful exertions, and sustained/awkward postures. Some the examples of repetitive motion injuries are carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and tendonitis.
