Repetitive Stress Injury | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the injury recognized?

The diagnosis of repetitive stress injury begins with a complete medical history and physical examination. The healthcare provider may order tests, such as:

  • x-rays and other imaging scans, such as an MRI
  • a nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) to check for nerve damage
  • blood tests, including a complete blood count (CBC), to rule out infection
  • a biopsy of any fluid or growths to rule out infection, tumor, or cancer
