Repetitive Stress Injuries
Injuries in the workplace do not necessarily happen at any certain time or event. They are often caused over time by repeatedly performing very common repetitive motions. Injuries caused by repetitive stress or repetitive trauma can manifest slowly and not present themselves for a long period of time. Ultimately, they can lead to serious medical conditions and, in very severe cases long term disability.

A Pennsylvania Work Injury Lawyer Who Understands Repetitive Stress Injuries
It is often difficult to establish the etiology, or origin, of a repetitive motion injury. They often take years to develop so it becomes a challenge to pinpoint when the injury occurred. Commonly, injuries to the wrists, hands and arms such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are a function of excessive keyboarding. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can also stem from anything that involves sitting at a computer screen all day. Sitting in front of a computer screen can induce pain in the shoulder girdle and the neck area as well. Lastly, Hip, knee & back injuries can be a direct result of years of repeated lifting, bending or squatting. The injury can manifest itself via a Cumulative Trauma Disorder.
Regardless of the cause of your repetitive stress injury it should be tended to immediately. Getting appropriate medical care in a timely manner is instrumental in the recovery process. Also, the sooner one gets medical attention the better the prognosis, or outcome. Going forward, certain accommodations may need to be made in the workplace in an attempt to prevent further damage. You deserve to work in a safe environment that does not compromise your health.
