Repetitive Stress Injuries – Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

If you have a repetitive stress injury from working and live or work in the Sacramento area, contact Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Attorney Alice A. Strömbom today for a free case evaluation. She is one of Sacramento’s leading work injury attorneys and works exclusively with injured workers and protects worker’s rights to compensation.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are sneaky. They develop slowly over time. Many employees, such as construction workers, don’t really seek a diagnosis or treatment until such time as the damage has already been done. If not properly treated, the injury becomes exceedingly more restrictive and painful. Even a simple task like buttoning a shirt can become an endeavor. Then comes the interference with the employee’s motor skills and the ability to perform his or her job in a workmanlike manner.

When people think of an RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome is the first condition that comes to mind, but there are a wide variety of RSIs that people have never even heard of. Just a few examples involve trigger finger, tendonitis, bursitis, thoracic outlet syndrome and rotator cuff damage. Symptoms can depend on the type of RSI that the employee has developed and how far it has progressed. Those symptoms might include:

  • A throbbing achy sensation
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Burning and tingling
  • Cramping, especially in the hands
  • Muscle weakness

If you think that you’re developing an RSI from the physical demands of your job, we encourage you to get examined right away. Remember that delaying examination and treatment is likely to only make matters worse.
