Repetitive Trauma Syndrome
Trauma may occur in any area of the body as a result of repeating the same movement or activity over and over throughout the day, for months or years on end. People who work long hours at computers and on assembly lines may cause specific injury to wrists, forearms, shoulders, feet, knees or backs because of their job or activity. Every worker is in danger of injuring job-specific areas of their bodies. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Rotator Cuff Syndrome are examples of repetitive trauma overuse syndromes. Even leisure activities performed frequently and repetitively in an improper manner can cause injury − like computer games, bowling, golf, or weight-lifting.
