Identifying Common Types of Repetitive Stress Injuries
Repetitive stress injuries can be caused by nearly any type of repetitive
movement or task, especially when there is no variation or breaks from
the task. For individuals who perform the same task, such as typing-related
activities, bar-code scanning, or static posturing, painful injuries can
develop over time without any major incident occurring.
Some of the most common types of repetitive stress injuries include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome: Swelling inside the wrist area (tunnel created by bone and ligament).
Individuals may feel pain, numbness, or tingling sensations.
Cervical radiculopathy: Caused by a compression of disks in the neck area, often due to holding
the neck in a bent or uncomfortable position to complete tasks.
Tendinitis: Any tear in the tissue connecting a person’s bones to their muscles.
Can be in any of the joint areas, such as the elbow, shoulder, wrist,
or ankle area.
Myofascial damage: General tenderness and swelling due to overworking the muscles. Very
common for factory or assembly line workers.
Once a repetitive stress injury has been identified, workers often wonder
what they should do next. If you are dealing with pain when moving your
arms or legs, tenderness over your joints, difficulty sleeping on the
impacted side, or are unable to carry out normal daily activities, you
need to seek immediate medical attention. If you delay, your injury could
develop into a much more serious and damaging condition. After that, a
workers’ compensation claim should be filed so that you can get
support for your medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and time away from work.
