If it's not tennis elbow, it may be 'Wiiitis'

    LOL, old news. People who have never played it might scoff but you can absolutely fuck up your shoulder/elbow playing the Wii. Even every time I don't play for a while I get it again too, just like golf/tennis/whatever in the real world.

    And for the required token joke, guys have been getting a sore wrist playing with their Wii for centuries.

    I suspect the lack of resistance might actually exacerbate the likelihood of injury. Maybe.
  4. Never having played a Wii, I'm not sure the exertion level required. However, you should always "warm up" prior to any physical activity. Sounds weird for a game, but it sounds like this would be the cause of the problem.

    The other problem is that because one does not get fatigued as one would in a real game, one keeps playing and playing and playing, thus increasing the risk of repetitive use injuries. But you are certainly correct that as a general rule, warming up would be helpful.
