In brief: Repetitive stress
We wrote a paer some time ago wiht video game players.
We called it video game violence. This is a repititive stress injury and you need to approach it in this manner. Pacing yourself, stretching between games can help. In sports we recommend heat - exercise - ice ( heat before sports and ice after sports). You will have to find what works for you.
