Repetitive Motion Injuries

Reliable Treatment for Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive motion injuries are among the most common injuries in the United States, making up a large portion of athletic and work-related injuries. This condition develops from microscopic tears in the body’s tissues or strains to the body’s muscles, nerves, ligaments or tendons that occur from performing daily activities and motions.

The most common types of repetitive motion injuries include tendinitis, bursitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

 

Causes

Often, causes of repetitive motion injuries include:

  • Repetitive activity
  • Trauma
  • Friction
  • Crystal deposits
  • Systemic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis
