For example, do you spend the day typing, using a hammer, swinging a golf club, or lifting heavy packages? And if you do, do you know that doing so could lead to a lot of pain and discomfort down the road? It doesn't matter what the movement is, if it is done enough and if you aren't paying attention, you may end up with a repetitive motion injury.
