Abstract
This chapter addresses specific disorders that constitute the larger group of problems known as repetitive motion disorders. Repetitive motion disorders are a group of musculo-tendinous maladies that are generally associated with workplace or occupational etiologies. Injuries due to repetitive motions are quite common and appear to be increasing in incidence. In 1980, these injuries were noted to comprise about 18% of all reported work-related injuries. In 1990, they were reported to make up approximately 48% of all work injuries. United States Bureau of Labor Statistics data in 1994 reported over 92,500 repetitive stress injury cases involving the upper extremity. These injuries were reported to be associated with over 37,000 days of work lost. The economic, impact of these injuries is enormous and represents one of the most pressing problems in occupational health and safety today.
