Ask the Experts

A. This is an injury to tendons, ligaments, bursa, nerves, cartilage, and muscle from repetitive stresses where the tissue does not have time for complete repair. The additive effects of repetitive forces leads to microtrauma, which in turn triggers the inflammatory process and can result in swelling.

People who do manual labor for a living can be highly susceptible to repetitive stress injuries. This is especially true for any job that involves gripping, pinching, or holding positions for long periods of time. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common overuse injury involving flexing the wrist for long periods of time. Postural problems and back pains are also common complaints. Changing postural and ergonomic habits can be key to treating these injuries. See a Physical Therapist for recommendations.
