Repetitive Strain Injury
Bringing a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) Claim
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is the result of repetitive movements causing damage to the nerves, soft tissues, tendons, and muscles as the same muscle groups become overused through repetitive work. Further, the repetition does not allow sufficient recovery time, thereby causing muscle fatigue. The consequent damage can cause enormous pain and permanent disability. A whole range of occupations can cause the condition. Indeed, increasing computer use, in particular, has caused an epidemic of injury to the hands, arms and shoulders.
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) conditions include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, thoracic outlet syndrome, myofascial pain syndrome, bursitis, tenosynovitis, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, DeQuervain's syndrome, and trigger finger/thumb.
Symptoms of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) include pain and discomfort, tightness, stiffness, soreness, burning in the hands, wrists, fingers, forearms, or elbows, tingling, coldness, and/or numbness in the hands, loss of strength and/or co-ordination in the hands, and a constant need to massage your hands, wrists, and arms.
