Repetitive Stress Injuries Are…
Repetitive stress injuries occur as a result of the same movement being repeated time and time again. The same repetitive motion results in increased stress on one part of your body which leads to muscle strains, inflammation, or potential tissue damage. A common injury related to this is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which is the result of a pinched nerve that runs from your arm to your wrist. While it may seem like a minimal injury, it has the potential to seriously affect your work. These injuries can happen to any employee working at any job.
