Treatment for Repetitive Motion Injuries
You always swing for the fences, take bold leaps, and embrace new opportunities. It's a great way to approach life, but when you’re living each day with such abandon, your body might need some time to rest. Repetitive motion injuries (also called repetitive strain injuries and cumulative trauma disorders) are very common, and usually develop when you repeat the same movements frequently in your work or hobbies, like typing, digging a fresh flower bed, or swinging for the fences. With our compassionate, whole-person approach to care, AdventHealth can help you discover the path to recovery for tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis and more — and the path to preventing the same injury in future. That way, you can get back to doing the things you love, pain-free and full of abandon.

- Repetitive Motion Injuries We Treat
It’s hard to believe that a pleasant activity like playing the piano or enjoying a game of tennis could cause an injury.
