Repetitive Stress Injury Compensation

Workers Comp for Repetitive Stress Injuries 

Are you suffering from a repetitive stress or repetitive motion injury? A repetitive stress injury occurs when a part of the body experiences too much stress from a repetitive motion. The motion causes swelling and pain and can damage muscle and tissue. Repetitive stress injuries commonly occur in areas of the body such as the elbow, hand, wrist, forearm, shoulder, back, knees and shoulders.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of several types of repetitive stress injuries. The severity of the injury will determine the type of treatment that is needed, such as medication, treatment by an orthopedic specialist, or surgery. If you have a work-related repetitive stress injury, contact a Kansas City workers compensation lawyer to discuss filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation can cover the costs of your medical treatment and any lost income if you have been unable to work because of your injury.

What is a Repetitive Stress Injury?

RSI, or Repetitive Stress Injury, occurs from a motion that is repeated over and over. This can commonly occur in the workplace since we often spend the majority of our day working. While carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common type of RSI, there are several other types that also happen frequently.

Common repetitive stress injuries that are work-related include:

  • Chronic lower back pain: Typically caused by constant bending and lifting, pain is considered chronic if it lasts for 12 weeks or longer.
  • "Tennis Elbow", or epicondylitis: Named since it very common among professional tennis players, this condition is caused by inflamed tendons around the elbow.
  • Trigger finger: A condition that causes pain, stiffness, and a locking sensation most commonly in the ring finger or thumb, but can happen to any of the fingers.
  • Bursitis: This painful condition is when the fluid-filled sacs in joints become inflamed.
  • Rotator cuff syndrome: The tendons and muscles in the shoulder become inflamed and painful due to overuse.
  • Tendonitis: This condition can affect any of the joints. Inflamed tendons can cause pain and chronic discomfort.
