Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries, or overuse injuries,are painful conditions caused by overuse or overexertion of one or more parts of the musculoskeletal system.It is usually caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compressions or sustained or awkward positions. This is actually an umbrella term that covers a large number of discrete conditions such as edema, tendinosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer’s and tennis elbow and trigger finger. Many of these injuries can be addressed by the use of an orthopedic brace or athletic tape to apply compression to the site of the injury or to restrict the movement of the injured muscle, tendon, ligament or other structure, thus permitting it to heal. Please consult with your doctor to ensure that your choice of treatment strategy is appropriate for your injury.
