Repetitive work that puts a strain on certain parts of the body may cause injury especially to the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and back. Work related upper limb disorder or repetitive strain injury are umbrella terms that cover a number of different medical conditions.
The medical conditions that can be caused by repetitive stressful work include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- De Quervains syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Trigger Finger
All the above conditions can occur regardless of the work done by the sufferer so it can be difficult to prove that it was the work that caused the condition.
If you have developed upper limb symptoms that have been diagnosed as work related and you have been required to perform repetitive physical tasks in your work you may have a claim.
