Micro Injuries?

So I listened to an episode of Super Human Radio that had some critique of high rep oly lifting schemes. They cite 'Micro Injuries' would slow progress, and eventually result in real injury.

Do know, my quote is a little out of context though. They did prefaced that micro injury would happen during an atmosphere where form slightly decays in order to get a better time, or under too much fatigue or pushing reps vs. technique.

What exactly is a micro injury?.. Do you really need to stay within a shorter rep scheme to avoid them, or is it purely a result of compromised technique? or is the whole thing just hogwash?

Sorry to bother everyone, but I figured there has to be more than just me wondering about the same thing. Thanks!
