Repetitive Stress Disorder

What is Repetitive Stress Disorder?

When excessive amounts of strain or stress are placed on one single body part that results in swelling, pain, tissue damage, or muscle strain, an overuse injury can occur, and this is often referred to as repetitive stress disorder. This condition can be placed under the same umbrella as sprains, strains, as well as repetitive motion injuries. These types of disorders tend to unravel for those who have jobs or hobbies that require repetitive motion at a high rate. (e.g. construction work, sports, or playing a musical instrument)
