How can repeating the same movement over and over damage my health?

Joints are places in the body where bones come together. At these joints tendons connect the bones to muscle. If you repeat the same movement over and over while working, the tendon can be damaged. Injuries to the wrists and elbows are common with farming and factory work. Injuries to the knees are common among domestic workers (‘house-maid’s knee’), miners, and other workers who kneel for a long time.
