A Repetitive Stress Injury Can Be Disabling

A repetitive stress injury (RSI) is an injury that results from repeated movement or overuse of a particular muscle or other area of the body. Repetitive stress injuries can affect workers in a variety of industries — not just people who use computers every day, as many believe. We represent factory workers, machinists, truckers, longshore and harbor workers, construction workers, health care workers and other workers who perform repetitive physical tasks at work.

Information About Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive movement in a variety of jobs can lead to an RSI: typing for hours a day; carrying heavy objects; operating a jackhammer for a prolonged period; having to hold one's body in an awkward position to perform job. Common RSIs include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • De Quervain's Disease
  • Knee injuries
  • Back injuries

Symptoms of a repetitive strain injury vary from person to person, but commonly people experience tingling, numbness, decreased movement in the area of injury, swelling, or pain in the affected area. An RSI can result in tissue damage, nerve damage, or muscle damage.
