Most businesses and its employees have set tasks throughout the course of their day. This can lead to a repetitive cycle of doing the same thing over and over again. Repetitively doing these tasks which include constant typing, lifting and other types of motions can lead to a repetitive motion injury. These types of injuries can include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Back or Neck problems and so much more.
Jeffers Denver Law has handled numerous personal injury cases involving many types of repetitive motion, such as:
- Bending or Lifting Heavy Objects
- Constant Hand Motions
- Continuous Typing
- Staying Bent Over for Extended Periods of Time
These are just a few of the examples of repetitive motions that can lead to a serious injury.
Injured workers with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome initially feel numbness and tingling of the hand in the distribution of the median nerve (the thumb, index, middle and part of the fourth fingers). Tests that are done to determine if you have Carpal Tunnel or other repetitive motion injuries such as Bursitis (Tennis Elbow), Tendonitis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also called Complex Regional Pain Disorder (CRPD) which is a severe and chronic injury to the central nervous system that can lead to a lifetime of pain and discomfort, are electromyography, nerve conduction velocity, and wrist x-rays. Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome includes wearing splints at night, and hot and cold compresses. Injured workers may also need to make changes in their work duties or at their work station. If conservative treatment fails, a surgery known as carpal tunnel release may be recommended.
Anatomy similar to that of the wrist and hand exists in the ankle and foot. “Tarsal” is a word derived from the Latin word for “ankle”. When the sensory nerve that passes though the tarsal tunnel is irritated by pressure in the tunnel, numbness and tingling of the foot and toes can be felt. This condition is referred to as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome and is treated similarly to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
