cumulative motion injury cmi
Cumulative Motion Injury (CMI)
  • Standard Practice Paper, Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf
    • Warm up prior to interpreting
    • Movement Efficiency
      • Fewer signs
      • Relaxed, neutral arm position style
      • Moderate speed; Moderate force
    • Rest Periods
    • Address Upper Arm, Upper Body muscle tightness
    • Stretching, Exercise, ‘Alternative treatments’

Cumulative Motion Injury (CMI)
  • Some things to add:
    • Time to Rehab = Time to Develop a CMI.
    • COLD often more appropriate than Heat in injury treatment (RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
    • Hand, Wrist, Forearm problems may originate in more PROXIMAL areas (Shoulder, Shoulder Girdle, Neck, etc.)
    • STRENGTH as important as FLEXIBILITY in maintaining joint and muscle health.
    • A muscle relaxes more completely after CONTRACTING against a MODERATE RESISTANCE.
