Cumulative trauma disorders have been medically described for about 100 yr and have been related to physical activities for nearly 300 yr.
Yet, avoiding these disorders in the shop and office is becoming of urgent concern only now, particularly because of the Occupational Safety as Health Administrations (OSHA's) investigation and enforcements programm.
Such disorders occur most often in soft tissues of the body, particularly at tendons and their sheaths.
They may irritate or damage nerves and impede blood flow.
