Can I do anything repetitively?

Over the last couple of years I have had several problems that I can only attribute to repetitive motions. First in my thumb after using a labeling tool for hours, now in one ankle from following an exercise routine at Curves, and now a wrist. Is this disorder something that can affect me anytime I do something repetitively? It would appear that I am more susceptible to this than other people, why would that be?:confused: And is there anything I can do to reverse that susceptibility? I am a 51 year old female. Thanks in advance for assistance.

  • Are you hyper mobile (double-jointed) in your joints? People with flexy joints can suffer repetative strain more than the average person as it is a connective tissue disorder and doesn't take kindly to extra stresses most people can take.If you are hyper mobile you will probably need to avoid repetitive activities, or use splints to reinforce and support your joints.Agape,searchingsam
