As computers and technology become more and more a part of our everyday work environment injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or other nerve problems are becoming more and more common. These injuries are repetitive use injuries and are common in factory workers, office workers, workers in the medical field, or anybody that experiences problems due to intensive use of their upper extremities.
Examples of repetitive use injuries are:
o Carpal tunnel syndrome and other wrist injuries
o Ulnar, radial, and median nerve problems
o Cubital tunnel syndrome
o Shoulder or torn rotator cuffs or other rotator cuff injuries
These injuries can result in physical therapy, loss of work time, and even surgery to decompress certain nerves. To make sure all of your needs are taken into account by your insurance company and your employer, call today for a free consultation.
