Repetitive Motions Can Wreak Havoc On Your Day-To-Day Life

The vast majority of injuries related to repetitive motion injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome diagnoses arise from workplace responsibilities. Patrick Shea, the founding attorney of the Law Office of Patrick G. Shea, APC, is a certified workers’ compensation specialist and has demonstrated that he knows how to get results for his clients. Being a certified specialist is the result of special recognition and extraordinary effort. The State Bar of California does not certify every attorney.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI), also referred to as repetitive motion injury (RMI) or cumulative trauma disorder (CTD), frequently occurs in the upper extremities when one’s profession requires repeated physical movements. Workers from a wide range of professions can be inflicted with a repetitive strain injury. Without proper ergonomic intervention and proper treatment, upper extremity tendons, nerves, muscles and other soft body tissues can be permanently damaged by repetitive motion.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Is Only One Type Of Repetitive Motion Injury

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the best known work-related upper extremity injuries. But it is not the only one. Other common upper extremity injuries include:

  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • De Quervain syndrome
  • Ganglion cyst
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Tendinosis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tenosynovitis
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Trigger finger/thumb
