Exercise is best treatment for repetitive stress injuries

SportsGeezer tells us of yet another thing exercise is a remedy for in “Repetitive Stress Injuries Respond Well to Exercise“:

“Repetitive stress injuries, often caused by some work-related motion, supposedly cost business $100 billion a year, so you might think someone would have figured out the best way to treat them a long time ago. Not exactly.

The good news, though, is that researchers now think they have an answer, and it’s not what most doctors would have recommended. The Los Angeles Times reports that a review of 14 studies suggests that different types of exercise, including strength, weight and endurance training, may be the best way to go.”
