Carpal Tunnel Injuries

Workers’ Compensation for Carpal Tunnel Injuries and Repetitive Motion Injuries

In the modern workplace, from the factory to the office, more and more people are sustaining injuries resulting from repetitive stress or motion (or even lack of motion). According to studies, more than half of all job-related injuries are now categorized as repetitive stress injuries. Here are some of the most common:

  • Assembly line injuries — On an assembly line, you may perform the same task hundreds of times in an hour or during a shift. It could be pinching, crimping, twisting, lifting, turning or any other type of movement—doing the same thing over and over frequently puts undue stress on nerves, joints, and connective tissue, leading to inflammation, pain and loss of mobility.

  • Fixed-position injuries — You may find yourself standing for hours, or bending in the same position. Frequently, people who sit at a computer all day find that their lower back begins to hurt.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome — If you use your hands or arms in a repetitive motion, including typing on a computer keyboard, you can develop what is known as carpal tunnel syndrome, the inflammation of nerves in the forearm, which can lead to pain, numbness and tingling in your arms

The debilitating consequences of repetitive stress injuries can stem from a variety of sources, including tears in the connective tissue between bones and muscle, and irritation of tendons (known as tendonitis), tenderness or swelling in muscle tissue.

Some occupations that see high rates of repetitive stress injuries include:

  • Auto mechanics

  • Inventory and stocking

  • Data entry and other computer jobs
