Has Your Work Caused Repetitive Stress Injuries?
The day-to-day duties of your job can lead to painful and debilitating injuries over time. A work-related injury does not always result from a single event, such as a workplace accident. Repetitive motions can add up over the years to produce inflammation, pain and nerve damage that eventually becomes unbearable to manage.
What Does A Repetitive Stress Injury Look Like?
People from nearly every walk of life can suffer repetitive stress injuries. Symptoms of stress injuries often involve:
- Loss of strength
- Severe pain
As the severity of the condition increases, you may need time off work to recover. Surgery is frequently needed to relieve the symptoms.
Office workers develop carpal tunnel. Nurses in hospital and nursing homes often develop degenerative disk disease or other back injuries. Painters, construction workers and laborers often need to use the same motions to accomplish tasks, leading to a repetitive strain injury.
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation providers are often reluctant to pay for injuries that cannot be linked to a single event.
