What are the signs of repetitive stress injuries?

Georgian workers all risk injury on the job, regardless of how dangerous their line of work supposedly is. We at McCamy Law Firm will help explain the potential signs of repetitive stress injury, which can be debilitating in its own right.

Repetitive stress injuries (RSI) can happen anywhere on the body. They're caused by an overuse of one area over an extended period of time. The hands and arms are particularly susceptible. Issues like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are a result of RSIs. 

The onset of symptoms can therefore be somewhat easy to miss, simply because they show up over a longer period of time. It may include decreased range of motion in the affected area, or sudden pain (either dull and prolonged or sharp and brief). If the nerves in the area are damaged in any way, you may also experience numbness and tingling in the affected area.

Over time, if not given the time to heal properly, RSIs will usually worsen. The pain will become more extreme, and your mobility will become more limited. Depending on the location of the injury, it may progress to the point that you are unable to continue doing your work. Severe cases can result in surgery with high costs and long heal times.

Has your workplace situation caused you to suffer from repetitive stress injuries? Now that you are aware of the signs, you can start to look into your options for compensation. A good place to start would be our website, linked here.
