Repetitive Motion Injuries: Treatment for Hands and Wrists

Repetitive Strain Injury Treatments

Here is just some of what you'll learn when you read the book: The three main signs of repetitive strain injury (Rsi) and how to quickly and easily recognize each. Rsis develop from small traumas (micro traumas) that occur over time. As each event is so small, the damage may go undetected for years, whilst individuals continue doing the damaging activities find out how to tell if you are susceptible to getting Rsi and how to prevent it. Discover the difference between: Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (Cts), Tendonitis (also, tendinitis), Tenosynovitis, Diffuse Rsi or non-specific pain syndrome (Nsps), Bursitis, Rotator Cuff Tendonitis and lesser known Rsis. 7 risk factors to Rsi you can avoid or reduce your exposure to repetitive strain injuries. Early warning signs of Rsi what to look for in yourself, your family and children and how to help prevent over exposure to damaging devices and limit their use in innovative ways. Common treatments for Repetitive Strain Injuries and how to know if a treatment is right for you, your child or loved one. Wondering if that headache is due to Rsi?

My Repetitive Strain Injury Treatments Review

Highly Recommended

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the writer was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

In addition to being effective and its great ease of use, this eBook makes worth every penny of its price.

Acute or chronic paratendinous inflammation or tenosynovitis may have several etiologies

Repetitive motion with injury is by far the most common etiology. Synovial tendon sheaths are located in areas where tendons pass over bony surfaces and where large tendon excursions are found, most commonly above the wrist and ankle. Repetitive motion causes inflammation with edema and a decrease in the fine tolerances already present in these gliding areas. The result is decreased excursion and painful motion of the affected tendon, often with signs of mechanical blocking, such as may be seen with de Quervain's disease and trigger finger.

Nondisplaced Fractures

Radial Head Fracture

MRI can be helpful in recognizing or characterizing nondisplaced fractures, and the imaging information may alter treatment. There are several types of fractures in which MRI can play a role. One is in identifying an otherwise radio-graphically occult fracture, such as a small radial head fracture (Fig. 6). MRI also can be helpful in avulsion fractures of the sublime tubercle in which it can help determine if the MCL is intact or if there is fibrous nonunion or a pseu-darthrosis 12 . Another fracture that can be seen on MRI images before radiographic changes are apparent is Little Leaguer's elbow, a repetitive stress injury of the physis at the medial epicondyle apophysis (Fig. 7) 13 . Finally, fatigue fractures can occur in athletes who generate high forces on the bones around the elbow. For example, throwers who work up to full activity too quickly can develop stress fractures of the olecranon process. Like stress fractures elsewhere in the body, they are not only easier to identify...

Etiology of injury

Jogging or running requires repetitive motion that exposes the musculoskeletal system to severe stress. Even the most conditioned runner reaches a point of fatigue and biologic failure. Limitations and proper preparation are important in preventing running injuries.

Pathogenesis

Intratendinous lesions occur primarily later in life as the vascularity of the tendon diminishes. They are usually associated with repetitive motion and are felt to represent microtrauma or limited macrotrauma short of rupture within the substance of the tendon. Local signs and symptoms of inflammation are caused by the reparative process of vascular infiltration with acute and chronic cellular responses. During the reparative process, calcium salts, which are visible on radiographs, may be deposited in degenerated portions of the tendon hence the term calcific tendinitis. Tennis elbow, calcific tendinitis in the supraspinatus, and trochanteric tendinitis are examples of intratendinous lesions.
