What is a repetitive motion injury?

A repetitive motion injury is a very common type of workplace injury. A repetitive motion injury is a type of health problem that is caused over time by continually performing the same tasks. For example, if you type a lot at work or use a factory machine that requires that you repeat a single motion over and over, then you may be at risk of developing a repetitive motion injury such as tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Frustratingly, repetitive motion injuries often need time away from work in order to heal. You may also require financial compensation for any physical therapy, medication, or other treatments.
