In brief: Motion injury

Repetitive stress injury is a condition that occurs when one does an activity over and over again leading to an injury of that particular part of the body.
This is common in factory workers, assembly line workers, and secretaries or others who do extensive typing. Carpel tunnel syndrome is an example of a repetitive stress injury. Proper ergonomics and occupational health can help in recovery.
