Types of Repetitive Motion Injuries
Repetitive motion injuries typically involve the upper extremities and are among the most common work-related injuries. They afflict workers of all types, from administrative assistants to manual laborers. Equipment such as computer keyboards, heavy machinery, hand tools, sewing machines and more can result in injuries such as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hearing loss
- Vision loss
- Nerve injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Shoulder injuries
Your specific occupation does not preclude you from suffering a repetitive motion injury. Whether you are typing, lifting, climbing, or filing, pretty much any repetitive act on-the-job can result in your body wearing down and suffering a repetitive motion injury.
