What is the prognosis for repetitive motion disorders (RMDs)?

Most individuals with repetitive motion disorders (RMDs) recover completely and can avoid re-injury by changing the way they perform repetitive movements, the frequency with which they perform them, and the amount of rest they take between these movements. Without treatment, RMDs may result in permanent injury and complete loss of function in the affected area.
