Assembly-line workers, house painters, and many others whose activities entail repetitive motions can end up with swelling, pain, and limited movement in the affected muscles. Often, use of the six steps described in this article brings fairly rapid functional improvement and prevents recurrences, with a minimum of medical intervention. In some cases, though, recovery is prolonged or the outcome is unusual. The authors present additional factors to consider in such cases, such as psychosocial concerns, worker fraud, and ergonomic problems. Part 2 of this article, beginning on page 72, details six common repetitive strain injuries.
