Repetitive Stress Disorders

Overuse injuries are caused by continued or improper motion which creates inflammation of the muscles, tendons and nerves involved in the action. RSDs are becoming more and more prevalent in the US due to the high demand of desk and assembly jobs and other tasks that require repeated movements with the hands held in front of the body. RSDs can cause mild to severe pain, numbness, loss of muscle function and weakness, and a lack of control and accuracy of movement. Disorders include the following:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome
  • Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer's Elbow
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
