Repetitive Motion and Stress Injuries in the Workplace

What Are Repetitive Motion Injuries?

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: pain or tingling in your hands. This occurs because the wrist is bent at an unnatural angle for long periods. This injury is common among employees working extensively with computers.
  • Tendinitis: inflammation of a tendon. More common in the upper body, this can occur from repetitive physical labor, straining the same muscles repeatedly.
  • Cervical radiculopathy: the compression or strain of disks in the neck and back, often from manual labor.
  • Epicondylitis: also known as “tennis elbow”, pain on the outside of the elbow or wrist caused by repeated forearm motions.
  • Loss of hearing: hearing damage can be gradual and quickly come from the usage of industrial machinery like jackhammers or leafblowers.
