Pediatrics is the most popular choice with students, according to Dr. Jane Bear-Lehman, chairwoman of the department of occupational therapy at NYU Steinhardt.

The school's two-and-a-half-year graduate program has flourished, with the number of applications up by 33 percent in the last year. One reason is the school's 100 percent employment rate, a trend that has led OTs to describe their profession as "recession proof."
The school's students, Dr. Bear-Lehman said, come from diverse backgrounds such as teaching, finance and fashion, driven away by bleak prospects in their fields.

"If there's a physical blood test that would indicate it, that may change the view of RSI," said Jane Bear-Lehman, associate professor of occupational therapy at New York University, who's familiar with the study.

Currently, therapists diagnose repetitive stress injuries by moving around a patient's wrist, shoulder or other body part and checking to see which positions cause pain, according to Bear-Lehman."It's not like a fracture where it's clear, you have a date of injury and you can see in an X-ray what happened," she said.
To make matters more complicated, inflammation can change from day to day depending on a person's work schedule, meaning that an injury may not be detectable at certain times, she said: "Because of the kind of disease it is, it may not hurt today, but it hurts tomorrow."

"For starters, it defies typical diagnostic tools," explains Jane Bear-Lehman, PhD, a licensed occupational therapist (OT) and professor at New York University.

"Develop a new set of rhythms and behaviors for mixing the needed pattern for work, rest, and stretching," says Bear-Lehman, the OT professor from NYU.
