Coding-amount of typing required

I'm considering returning to school to complete my associates degree in health information technology & then take the cpc.
What are the working conditions for coders when it comes to the amount of typing? Carpel tunnel syndrome common? Can I expect to type 9 hours a day?

Even though you would not be typing as much as a medical transcriptionist it still would require constent typing for a long period of time.
