Understanding Repetitive Motion Injuries
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), we know that repetitive motion injuries are one of the fastest-growing occupational injuries in the United States. These injuries are caused when workers sit or stand in the same positions for extended periods or have to perform the same manual task repetitively over long periods of time.
One of the most well-known types of repetitive motion injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). While this is one of the most common types of repetitive stress injuries, there are many more that regularly affect workers across the United States. Other common repetitive motion injuries that a personal injury lawyer in Orange County can help employees with include:
Dystonia, aka writer’s cramp
Nerve entrapment disorders
Radial tunnel syndromeOrange County Practice Areas
Ulnar tunnel syndrome
Rotator cuff injuries
Blackberry thumb (DeQuervain’s syndrome)
Knee injuries that affect the ACL or MCL
Epicondylitis, aka tennis elbow
Thoracic outlet syndrome
These injuries occur in a variety of ways aside from performing the same motions repetitively. Other common contributors to repetitive motion injuries include:
Working in an awkward position
Using vibrating equipment
Performing repetitive forceful movements
Using poorly designed equipment
Working in an environment that is not ergonomically sound or is poorly organized
Failing to take adequate breaks
Lifting heavy items or lifting items that are awkwardly shaped
Though repetitive motion injuries occur over longer periods of time, they are no less debilitating, and workers should receive full compensation when these injuries happen on the job.
