The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times.

Repetitive Motion Disorders

Repetitive motion disorders are musculoskeletal conditions caused by movements/motions done over and over. RMDs can be caused by:

  • Muscle/ligament friction from unnatural or awkward motions like twisting the arm, wrist, hands or other areas of the body where repeated motions are used.
  • Incorrect posture/positioning when doing these movements.
  • Overdoing it, either trying to go faster or with added strength that really strains the muscles.

RMD’s cause symptoms because of muscle fatigue, inflammation, and swelling or compression of the nerve’s tissues. Examples include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the tunnel of bones and ligaments in the wrist begin to pinch the nerves in the fingers and the muscles around the thumb.
  • Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa that’s between the tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone/s.
  • Tendonitisis inflammation, irritation, and swelling of a tendon/s.
  • Epicondylitis (elbow pain) is inflammation, soreness, and pain on the outside of the upper arm around the elbow.
  • Ganglion cyst occurs when tissues surrounding specific joints get inflamed and swell up with fluid.
  • Tenosynovitis happens when the lining of the sheath that surrounds a tendon gets inflamed.
  • Trigger finger can be a painful or painless clicking, snapping, or locking of a finger/s.

 

 

All of the above conditions can be caused by other means and not repetitive movement/s.

RMD Work Risk

Jobs vary all over, but if repetitive movements are how the job gets done those individuals have a higher risk to get a repetitive motion disorder. There are professions and activities that increase the risk that include:

  • Assembly/factory linework
  • Carpentry
  • Computer work like typing, digital/graphic design where a digital pad/pen and mouse are the main tools that have to keep moving
  • Gardening
  • Lifting children like at daycare
  • Meatpacking

RMD Symptoms

Symptoms of these disorders can include:

  • Pain, soreness, pinching and stiffness in the fingers, hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, shoulders, neck and back
  • Tingling or numbness.
  • Swelling or redness around the area.
  • Loss of flexibility and strength.
  • There could be no visible sign of injury or pain, but individuals find that the normal and easy tasks they’re used to become more and more difficult to do.

Injuries that are caused by repetitive movements often develop gradually. This is the time when the symptoms are mild and come and go, so the individual just works through it and doesn’t think about it. It’s not until the symptoms get very painful and debilitating that the individual realizes that something is wrong, and then they seek medical attention. Don’t wait, as soon as you feel a tingle, slight pinch, or a little soreness and you feel that it stems from your work’s repetitive movements, get in touch with a doctor or chiropractor before it becomes excruciating.
